Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
August 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes the car was 4 months old, a demonstrator with 50 miles on it - right colour and spec.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I've had a Jeep Cherokee for 8 years, its been a fine, reliable car but needed replacing. I wanted an automatic 4wd sytem (wife struggled last winter in the Jeep), offroad capability, 40 mpg and comfortable enought to use on a long journey, not too big - and of course value for money. The only car which has all that is the suzuki....

What was the dealer like?
Dealer was fine - all painless.

Very good, amazing grip in the wet, no serious offroading but all good. Far Far better than the Jeep it replaced. Can get a bit unsettled on bumpy roads but not a problem to me

What's it like to park?
Good size and steering lock, visibility is ok - rear wheel on the back can be hard to judge but otherwise fine.
