Suzuki Wagon-R+ (00-07)

Value

5 out of 5

7k for an auto, brand new with metallic paint and 12 months rfl. Mega value. Go check the price of the Vauxhall version and see the equipment level and the old engine they put in. You get vvti and auto for the price of the 1ltr base manual Vauxhall.

Costs

5 out of 5

Silly to the gallon. We have lost 4k in 12 months on previous cars and this only cost 7k so how bad can it be? Very good on fuel too.

Performance

Not a rocket ship, but 80-90 on the motorway is comfortable.

Reliability

Always started, too new to tell.

Bit of a mum mobile, but that's what it was made for.

Comfort

5 out of 5

The seats look like deckchairs but are so comfy it's untrue. The upright seating position leaves you feeling refreshed and alert after a long drive. All the electric goodies are included too.

Security

5 out of 5

Superb drivers door first feature is nice for dark car parks, immobiliser as standard. Not really a sexy theft mobile, so no problems there then.

Service

4 out of 5

Very changeable. Sometimes great, sometimes very poor. depends where you go. Smaller franchises try harder but they aren't Honda.

Problems

Bodywork
Fine, no chips but not much motorway work done. Big Flat sides show dents quite easily.

Engine
Likes it's oil, very revvy.

Gearbox
OK, it's an auto and very smooth.

Other
Windscreens are a pain to get hold of. Make sure you only have Suzuki screen fitted as others don't fit! I know we tried 3.
