What does this car say about you?
I don't care what it says about me.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think it's great.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definitely, it's so cheap to run. I also have a Rover 75 2.5 V6 Auto and an Alfa Romeo GTV V6 3.0, but it's the Suzuki that gets used most of the time, i't had 106,000 miles on when i bought it, now has 133,000 and still going great.

What are you likely to buy next?
Newer model Suzuki Alto, forget the rubbish to motoring magazines write about these cars, they are great to own and drive.
