Guess their 100,000 mile/160000km/7yr automotive warranty is null and void now.

IMO they needed to spend more on advertising. Very few people even know Suzuki make cars.

They use to make motors for Chevy's little cars.

Toyota Tundra is the most American made truck sold in the USA. No really! Never thought I'd ever say that!

Thats right Ford, Chevy, and Dodge man!

Unreal!

My little brother got one when they first came out. They sold them first in Florida,Cali and Texas. That little booger was still running like a champ when he sold it 11 years later. Never any problems.
