I bought a new 2001 esteem, my car was built 100% in japan
Your forenza was built in korea, at the old daewoo factory.
Most people dont know that, although on the window sticker it does say " Country of Origin " and when you saw made it korea, that should of been the tip off to you that something was amiss there, why would suzuki build their flagship in a country other than japan, now that they dont sell the esteem or the verona, incidentally the verona was built at the same daewoo factory where the built / continue to build the forenza, apparently the penney pinchers at suzuki have either fell into a barrel of saki or their brains are fried from a little too much wasabi, now we will have to see if the loommakers over there have the good sense to build the kazashi in hamamatsu where they built my esteem + sport model.
When i was a kid, we used to say china cheap, jap junk and korea crap.
I thought that junk was better than crap and cheap and cheap was better than crap , so that places junk at the top and crap at the bottom of the list with cheap closer to crap than it is to junk which is always another mans treasure but cheap and crap always have been and always will be.
