New Alto Worries - To Buy Or Not
I live in the UK and am thinking of purchasing a brand new Alto at £5999. I test drove the SZ3 a couple of weeks ago and actually liked it a lot (despite family and friends hating it). I thought it had a lot of character, that it ran surprisingly well at speed, and I loved the three cylinder engine.
I heard that next year Suzuki will be phasing out the Alto (as well as the Splash) in place of the Celerio.
My worry: Will parts still be available for the Alto?
The Suzuki dealer advised not to worry about it. That parts will be available for 10 years minimum. But if you want to sell a car, you'd likely say this.
Fingers crossed I'll likely be back to the dealer this weekend to test drive again.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
