Does anyone know where to find photos of the new 2005 Aerio dash they have gone to analog and although I just bought a 2004 SX I would like to see what I am missing out on.

I always feel the sales pressure, and I always feel like your gettin' beat up when you walk out of the managers office.

Oh Well done deal.

I just bought a 2004 Suzuki Liana (the Australian version of the Aerio) and it has the analog dash in it! So I will take some pics of it as soon as I can.

And while I'm here...Does anyone know if Australia will get the AWD version? We only get a 1.8L VVT FWD down under. But it still goes great!

Thanks for the photo that dash IMHO is a big improvement over the digital version.

I cannot help you out with the AWD question Canada has them available.

A member from another forum has recently recieved an email list of changes from his Suzuki Rep. For you Canadians in here, this appears to be a US model listing as the 'S' model for us is a hatchback. I've underlined what I think is important.

That's a great list, I think Suzuki is moving in a good direction.

There seems to be a fair number of Canadians on this forum.

You're absolutely right about the Canadians thing. We Canadians with our Winter climate are HUGE fans of Suzuki reliability. I've been driving Suzuki exclusively since '93 and they have NEVER let me down (unless of course it was my own fault - I had a habit of leaving my Swifts lights on :D).

My previous two vehicles were both Buicks, I'd have had more problems with either of those in six months then I have of 12 years of driving Suzuki's.

'93 Suzuki Swift 1.3l
'03 Suzuki Aerio SX AWD 2.0l
