    Bad Dog!

    That was too funny. I have a Beagle, and she is an absolute nut job. Agree with last post, dogs are awesome creatures.

    Smart fortwo convertible

    I know my comment is a bit late, but this would really be a great car if Suzuki was the manufacture. They already have a great little 1L3 from the original Swift/Metro. It was not unusual to see these with well over 100k on them. It would be a quality small car, with incredible MPGs, unlike the unremarkable Smart.

    New Stingray!

    I agree. I think they are powered by 660cc, supercharged fours. Probably a blast to drive on some of the narrow, crowded streets in the old country.

    New Stingray!

    These are the cars that have Suzuki at the number one sales position in Japan. Besides motorcycles, this is their bread&butter type of car. I'm just not so sure they could sell them in the states, unless gas gets over $6 gal.

    New guy here,

    Thanks ocnblu. I guess I have a fondness for the proverbial underdog. I hope they remain a player in the US market, as I think they really are of the best automakers at building quality cars at affordable prices. I actually can't believe the prices they offer, considering their manufacturing for US market vehicles is based in Japan. Fingers crossed. I really like the photo in your signature.

    New guy here,

    Hello everyone. I came across this site while searching for some Suzuki Kizashi info, and you had a great review posted. This seems like a great site, and I'm glad to be a member. My current ride is a 2012 Suzuki Kizashi GTS AWD, and I think I'm in love with my car. I live in Pittsburgh, and I just can't stop thinking about a little snow coming our way, and me in the local parking lot doing donuts. I've been a Suzuki owner on and off, this being my fourth "genuine" Zuk (no Dawoos here). I had a X-90, followed by an SX4 AWD (my wife still has one), and now the Kizashi.

    Thanks. Sorry for the rambling, but I do love driving this car, and I really can't wait for a little Pittsburgh snow.

    2012 Suzuki Kizashi Sport GTS AWD

    I love driving it. I think the interior is very refined, much better than most other cars in it's price range. I have about 1600 miles on her, and I really have no issues what-so-ever. I've owned, and driven nothing but manuals for the last 30yrs, and I actually like this CVT. The paddles work quick, and smooth. I really haven't used the slap stick so much. The electronic steering has great feedback, and the braking is super. I don't know what else say. It's just a great overall package, and I actually look forward to my morning commute to work, and often take the long route home just for kicks. One last note, the Fosgate stereo has incredible sound, and my iPhone linked up without a problem. In fact, I set everything up using voice control. It also has a USB port (I use a 16gb flash drive in it), or you can plug any other medium into it. Good luck with your search. I think it will be well worth your time.

    Sorry to hear about the Rockford Fosgate changes. That had a huge push on my decision to go with the GTS AWD, after test driving the SE. PS; My original post was under the "guest" name R. Pealer, on the Sept. 22
