Suzuki Wagon-R+ 1.3 GL 5d (2001/Y) - Owner Review

Despite it's size it can carry a lot. Seat's fold down easily in seconds and when folded the car is more like a small van. Huge tailgate makes loading large items easy.

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Well it's not for people who care about fashion. Practicality was the number one concern when I bought this, plus it's cheap to run and insure which also helped. I needed a car that was inexpensive but capable of running a small family around.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They've got used to it now. I think they thought I'd gone mad at first but most people who have been in it realise the benefits.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would think of buying another newer model as the spec is even better now. It's proved to be reliable.

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe the same again, or something a little bigger (Vauxhall Meriva, Citroen Berlingo etc)

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Not a hot rod, but the 1.3 engine is nippy enough and often takes people by suprise when I pull away at the lights leaving them standing. Much better than the Vauxhall Agila for power. Drives well on the motorway and is great around town. However, you can feel bumps a bit more than average on very rough roads.

What's it like to park?
Very easy, the extra height helps and all round visibility is good.

Small problem with rattling Brake Pads, fixed quickly at a local Suzuki dealer although it was

What's most practical about your car?

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The under seat storage, very handy with a small child in the car to carry all the extras you need!
