Cramped and noisy but it keeps you awake.

For a 996cc, not bad but headwinds and hills kills it.

Mechanically superb, turn key and go.

Quirky looks, but people are indifferent to it.

Comfort

2 out of 5

Even the bucket seats are awful after a long journey, also noisy and rattley.

Immobiliser, but who would choose to steal one?

Service

Both dealership and head office had no interest in my bodywork problems.

Problems

Shockingly bad paint, flaking off from roof and bonnet. Suzuki GB are not interested.

Gearbox
Almost perfect, a little tight when cold.

Other
Upholstery beginning to fray and carpets coming unstuck.
