Cool How reliable is the Suzuki reno?

Hi, im considering a suzuki reno for my girlfriend for her first car, she likes the vw jetta or beetle (2000-2004) but I think she would be better of with the suzuki, the reno she would get would be an automatic, she isn't going to drive a lot just groceries, mall, school and etc, she isn't going to do very much highway trips. Is this car fine enough that would be low maintenance? or is not going to break every day like many volkswagens do? thanks in advance

I don't think they are bad vehicles if you are a maintenance-conscious owner.Make sure timing belt has been changed at 60 k

miles intervals otherwise the 2.0 interference engine will be a potential toast if it's overdue.

TRS every a couple years and mediocre mpg for a 4 banger.Engine is forgiving on oil changes.

Not the worst car out there but pretty close ,they are cheap to buy for a reason.


I love ours though and would buy another one any day before a Jetta or Bettle.lol

Not the worst car out there but one of the top 5 worst of that vintage,they are cheap to buy for a reason.

Transmission Range Sensor.$35 part and absolutely DIY fix.

We have not had that many problems out of our Forenza,which is the same car as Reno,in 3 1/2 years,


New radiator,battery,TRS,valve cover gasket,headlight bulb,timing belt beside oil changes.

I would not pay more than 3 Grands for them even in great condition and less than 100 k on odometer.
