Hello all , not sure if you guys heard. But Suzuki is pulling out of the US market. Due to bankruptcy and slow sales.
I feel bad for the company , because I really like the Kizashi sedan ( If I had the money , I would be first on my list for a new vehicle ). My friend has a blue SX4 , AWD hatchback , it treats him well.

Here's a link..http://www.autoblog.com/2012/11/05/american-suzuki-motors-files-chapter-11-will-no-longer-sell-car/

Well that's it.
Joe.

No tears here. I suspect Mitsubishi will be right behind them.

The general consensus is that they really weren't trying.

Agree fully; their lineup shrunk drastically for 2013, and I think the Evo fad has run its course.

I'm surprised they lasted that long. We actually had a dealer here in town for a couple years, but they didn't catch on and folded. Their bikes are nice but their cars were very 'meh'

Like I said , the Kizashi was always appealing to me.
I like the Swift GTi too. The new Swift is really nice.

Agree 100%. I installed a vinyl wrap on a new Suzuki suv a few years back...the car was very cheap looking/feeling. I wasn't impressed at all.

Suzuki got stuck with marketing some Daewoos, but the Vitara, Grand Vitara, SX4 and Kizashi were Japanese made by Suzuki, and are generally considered good values. Strange though, I have never seen a Kazashi in real life. I see exotic imports all the time around here, never once seen the Kizashi.
