This bankruptcy has, in a weird way, given me some piece of mind. I've been thinking of trading the SX4 on an alternate vehicle for the reasons stated previously, but now it looks like I'll be keeping it. I do intend to trade/sell our other vehicle (HHR SS) on a Fiat 500c in the spring if all goes according to plan. The SX4 is actually a Fiat Sedici so I'll just be expanding the family with the 500c!
I've been using synthetic oil since Day 1 and it's been driven carefully, so hopefully it will prove to be a 10-15 year vehicle. It certainly will not fetch a decent amount on any trade or sale now. I'm planning on having the gray aluminum wheels resurfaced in a gloss gunmetal black and maybe adding some tasteful red, white, green pinstriping (Italian flag colours). One wheel was actually damaged by brake residue when the rear brakes failed prematurely at 28,000 km (17,000 miles). I'm interested in the stories that others have posted about their trade-in experiences since the Chapter 11 announcement. Cheers.
SUzuki alive in Jamaica

........Suzuki Motor Corporation, however, reaffirmed its commitment to the continued development and advancement of Suzuki vehicles in the Caribbean region, including Jamaica.
Brent Murphy, general manager of the authorised Suzuki distributor for the Caribbean region, explained that "Suzuki's new model plan started with the 2012 Swift, which has been a great success for the brand, and continued with the 2013 Grand Vitara". Murphy also noted that Jamaica will see the introduction of an exciting new crossover sometime next year.
