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

Superb once you've got going, but racy engine & light clutch make for a jerky start in 1st gear, but you soon get used to it.

Suzuki Wagon-R+ (00-07)

Value

4 out of 5

For a Japanese car in this class, excellent. A genuine small family car, with serious load lugging capabilities and a tardis like interior, much better value than your typical small hatch.

Costs

5 out of 5

42 MPG urban from a 1.3, this is diesel economy from a petrol, but not much better at 70 MPH + on the motorway due to its tall shape. DIY servicing easy & parts reasonable.

Driving

3 out of 5

Superb once you've got going, but racy engine & light clutch make for a jerky start in 1st gear, but you soon get used to it.

Performance

3 out of 5

Good turn of speed, but will comfortably drive in 5th gear at 25 MPH, giving a feeling that it needs another gear at motorway speeds.

Reliability

5 out of 5

In short, absolutely bullet proof! Get a well serviced one and worry not, it won't let you down.

Image

3 out of 5

If you are bothered about image in a car, you won't be reading this anyway.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Not plush, but a very comfortable driving position due to its height and four adults have plenty of leg and head room.

Immobiliser, but who the hell is going to want to nick one of these.

Service

None, I either service myself or use an independent garage.
