poor experience with Suzuki

the car has had electrical problems from day one it was rejected as per consumers act they have totally ignored the act as its to costly to take to court we still are waiting for repairs to be undertaken wouldn't touch a Suzuki with a barge poll because the company knows there's problems and are not fixing them after three years of complaints Show details

Love the fuel efficiency

Bought the car second hand and I love it more than I thought I would. For long distance trips I'm getting 5.5 litres per 100km. Very easy to drive, and everything is practical and easy. Show details

Great car for going to the shops

Bought this car in 2016. Didn’t think I would ever go to a smaller cc than the 2ltr Mazda 3 I had before.
So I was quite surprised about how much go this little car has. The only time it may have been a bit sluggish was carrying 4 people and towing a trailer with camping gear down the south coast.
There is a rattle in the front passenger’s seat and the gears are a bit choppy when traveling at low kms , so that’s what the manual gear is for.
Used on a daily basis for work and going to the shops and where ever.
It’s approaching 165000 kms and still going strong and serviced every 10000km. Show details

Great fun car

It's drive is smooth and has turbo power when needed .... I for one do like the interior and I do prefer the hard plastic that others don't , the soft dash can split in time so I'm happy the way it is ..... Mileage is great bought in 2017 , no problem at all .... would buy again ......

After sales disappointment

The car is ok, i've had rattle noises from the dash and around the front seatbelt areas since i purchased the car. I've complained at every service, brakes have been squealing for the past 3 and no one seems to care. The rattles are that bad i don't want the car anymore. Show details

Perfect compact SUV

Truly underrated car, the quality is excellent, drive and handling is perfect much better than the CVT engine. The 1.6l Hungary made engine is smooth as butter,
Best value for money in the segment. Design could have been Better but Vitara being a legacy brand it's understandable. Show details

Great car!

I have had this car for 6 months and I love it! It runs so well and is such a nice car to drive but I do have some cons: it doesn’t have the option to automatically lock the doors when you start driving. The radio screen has restarted itself a few times and it doesn’t have a lot of power when taking off all minor issues though.
Overall I would definitely recommend this car to small families.  Show details

Perfect car for all adventures!

Reliable car - never had any problems with it since the day I bought it brand née 5 years ago.
Car is used daily and for the entire family including the dogs.
Car is serviced regularly every 3-6months as required. Had to change tyres once in its time and only ever had to replace battery once as well.
Only down side is the boot isn’t the biggest. So I do struggling to put two dogs there, with the kids in the car too. Usually the dogs can’t come when the kids are too. :(  Show details

Best car we’ve owned

We have the 2018 turbo model and we’re not at 50,000km and haven’t spent a cent on it other than serving and tyres. It’s light, well equiped and punchy with the turbo. We tow a trailer with it and you can’t even tell it’s there even on hills. Love this car, we will drive it till it dies and then buy another one. Show details

I am wanting to purchase new vitara turbo allgrip, but I have one query, can i request the previous model tail lights that include reverse lights, I wish to add a towbar and dont think the placement of reverse light is practical on the latest model, from what I have read they are interchangable

Is anyone with the LY 2022 manual having any trouble with it losing power up hills?
I have taken it to the dealership 3 times and they say because it's not throwing an error code there is nothing wrong with it.
I have nearly been cleaned up twice by trucks heading to Sydney as I drop down to 40km (3rd gear and foot to the floor) instead of 110km (5th gear)
