Suzuki Wagon-R+ 1.3 GL 5d (2000/W) - Owner Review

Excellent for town use, comfy & confident. OK on the motorway but a bit hairy at high speed bends or overtaking at speed (too light).

Excellent for a 1.3 of this size & shape. Good acceleration, 100 mph top speed.

Reliability

Bullet-proof! If you can find a well serviced example, buy it with confidence.

Image

3 out of 5

If you are a saddo who needs an image, you won't be reading this review. Its a mini-MPV for gods sake.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Good head & leg room front & back, nice seats but velour would be better than the fabric which is standard across the range.

Don't know really, deadlocks and immobiliser as standard, but hardly on the joy riders hit list.

Service

1 out of 5

Never dealt with main dealer, there is nothing alien about this car that an independent dealer couldn't deal with.

Problems

Bodywork
Still like new.

Engine
Runs perfectly at 35,000.

Gearbox
Slick.

Other
Handbrake can seize if left standing unused for a week or so. Leave in gear with handbrake off if you won't be using it for a while.
