nice family wagon by schmooga on 03/09/2008. Trim: 2006 Suzuki Forenza Wagon Base, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Really got the most car per dollar than any other comparable wagon. great design and handles well. It also has a very nice interior considering it's budget price range. I have had it for about 2 years now and no problems yet aside from one seat belt recall I had to bring it in for.
Cons: It has slow acceleration. You really have to plant your foot on the floor to get this car to be peppy. Though the car has a very nice appearance The paint job is a very low quality and fragile. It must be cared for regularly or it looks dull fast.
Overall review: I Highly recomend this vehicle if you are really trying to save money but want to step up from a focus or a civic. this is a much more enjoyable ride in my opinion

Suzuki For-get it by Mike from Bradley, Maine on 03/26/2012. Trim: 2006 Suzuki Forenza Wagon Base, Owned 6 years.
Pros: absolutely nothing!
Cons: the low profile 15" wheels are easily damaged, the stereo and seat belts were junk at about 30,000 miles, the car has a huge blind spot while backing up, rear wiper is uneffective, sensors in transmission went bad at about 40,000 miles ( and not covered by "bumper to bumper" warranty) at a cost of over 700.00, an awful vibration sound occurs when the rear window is opend at highway speedsand the air bag lights have been on since the car had just over 10,000 miles on it. It also chews up a set of tires every year at 100.00 per tire.
Overall review: What an overpriced, throw away car. I don't like to travel anywhere in it and I don't feel safe with my family in it. This car makes the Chevy Chevette look like a luxury car.

A surprisingly good car at a great price. by Suzuki Fan on 11/03/2007. Trim: 2006 Suzuki Forenza Wagon Premium, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Lots of content at a reasonable price. Great styling for a wagon. Surprisingly roomy interior. 7 year, 100k mile warranty has NO deductible.
Cons: Torque steer is pretty bad, pulls to the right when accelerating hard. The automatic transmission could be smoother.
Overall review: This Korean built car isn't quite up to the quality of the better Japanese or domestic cars but the price makes up for the its minor shortcomings. The transmission seems slow to shift on cold mornings and the engine is a bit buzzy at times. Fuel economy is in the low 20s in heavy city driving with AC running, not terribly impressive for a 2.0L 4 banger. It does a lot better on the highway. I've been getting 30-35 depending on terrain. These are minor gripes considering this is a low priced car. I've got the fully loaded Premium model with sunroof and ABS options yet the sticker was still under $18k. The interior is comfortable with plenty of room for 4 and it has more cargo room than many small SUVs. They did a great job with both interior and exterior styling. Fit and finish is quite good. All things considered the Forenza offers up a lot of car for very little money. I think it is a better value than the Toyota Matrix or Pontiac Vibe.

Family Car by Richard from El Paso on 08/25/2006. Trim: 2006 Suzuki Forenza Wagon Premium, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great for a small family and easy on gas. Great to go get groceries and go to work as well.
Cons: I've had to take it in for the Air Conditioning Compressor and get it replaced. Engine light came on and I have to take it to the dealership to get it checked. All within the first 2000 miles.
Overall review: I have not had the car long and can't say too much. Its good for the family but if I have to keep taking it to the dealership it may be a sign of an underlying problem.

Alot Of Car For The Price by Bernie454, Long Island, New York on 02/05/2006. Trim: 2006 Suzuki Forenza Wagon Base, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The best part of the car is the fact that everything comes standard except for moonroof, fog lights, and a alarm. It rides really nice for a 4 cylinder. The interior is quite comfortable and roomy, not to mention the storage space. Factory sound system sounds excellent. Overall I believe for the price, the consumer is getting a great car and alot for the price. The warrenty is excellent. There is no deductable on the warrenty unlike hyundai. Overall great car.
Cons: 1) Road noise due to low profile tires. 2) No factory alarm on base models 3) A little slow on take off For all you 6 cylinder drivers, it takes a little while to get used to it.
Overall review: Excellent for the price, Excellent ride, Perfect for families with one or two children, or for someone who needs a vehicle to lug things from place to place for under $20,000.00.
