I am curious about the quality of this car, how long it lasts. What types of things can you do to it. I haven't seen many pics of these cars on the forum. I will continue to research until i find if this is the site for me. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

This is THE Forum for Suzuki cars.

The forenza is a $14k dollar car. That said, its not rich on perks, you get the squeeks that a cheeper car has. If you want a no querks car get something expensive and German
I'm not saying its a bad car, just that some people get on, and expect it to live up to the Infinity there parents have, or the BMW the boss has, ect

There are CAI, UD pullys, springs, swaybars, and some things in the works. Our members are the driving force for the aftermarket here. He see an need and fill the gap so to speak.

I love my 04, its just that I know its a cheep car, and exspect things to be squeeky or alittle plasticy. For a Point A to B car with some Italian looks at Korean prices, this is your car

Is this car known for breaking down before 100,000miles? I know that it is a cheap car and i am not looking to run 12's in the quater mile. I am looking for reliability, something that has potiental to look good and that maybe I put a very small aftermarket system and a TV in it with black rims/black car maybe with a mesh grille and call it a day in the begining.

Just take care of it. Change the timing belt assembly including water pump often (35,000-45,000 miles). Do good oil and filter changes.


There are Daewoos out there running on over 200,000 miles in the USA and over 600,000 in the middle east. If you take care, they run forever.



Do be prepared for pop and rattles though, it's a cheap car and these things tend to happen

Welcome!

Other than the kind of cheesy interior look I think the cars pretty perfect for a tuner.

I think I've ran my car harder than anyone here. Used to take it out on dirt roads/washes as fast as i could every weekend, auto-x, and take her to the road course at least once a month. Then I've put ~82,000 miles on it in less than 4 years, nearly all the miles are city, and keep in mind I live in phx, Arizona where the climates very hot. With all that being said the only problems I can think of that weren't caused by either me, or something I've done is the slave cylinder going out. It's happened twice within 70k miles but I run a heavy clutch which may or may not hurt the life of it (I'm honestly not sure) and then of course the track. Oh and ~5 people learned stick on it.
