My Suzuki Esteem by Lora on 04/06/2003. Trim: 2001 Suzuki Esteem GL, Owned 2 years.
Pros: It gets excellent gas mileage and is a great car to travel in.
Cons: The rear middle seatbelt doesn't seem to adjust to fit anyone under 300lbs (go figure in a compact car). There is an annoying squeel under the hood everytime it rains and continues for days afterwards. I had taken it to the dealer several times while it was under warranty, yet noone could figure it out. The center console lid has broken twice.
Overall review: The car does run very well and I am mostly satisfied with it. However, there are a few annoying things that bother me. If these problems didn't exsist, I would have rated it a 10 across the board.

Excellent car for the money by Wildebeast on 01/10/2013. Trim: 2001 Suzuki Esteem GL, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Bought this car new in 2000. Most of the parts on the car is still original, it is the most reliable car I ever had, despite the fact that I drive this car very hard, but I stay on top of the maintenance. Sometimes I am sorry I didn't buy 2 of them. Lots of pep on with the 1.8 manual. With some slight mods this car has surprised a lot of people with how much get up & go it has. Can give good efficiency, but you will have to drive like an old lady to get those numbers.
Cons: The suspension felt floaty with moderate body roll in corners. I have recently upgraded to performance springs & struts. It makes a world of a difference in the handling. Interior is not as refined as others cars in the class, but it more than makes up for it in other ways.
Overall review: For the price, you get a great car, for reliability, efficiency & pep. I would recommend this car to anybody and give it a 9 out of 10. I have no plans of selling this car.
