2006 Suzuki Aerio Sedan

- lots of toys for the price.
- MPG 24 on winter gas and only 26 with summer gas.
I purchased a 2006 AWD and got a great deal (I thought). The gas milage is not even close to the sticker. I realize I had to give up some for AWD. My trade (a 2001 base Accent w/auto trans) averaged over 36 MPG same driver same conditions. The Aerio struggles to get 25 MPG. The ride is great and the seats are higher than others in it's class. Sound system nice with steering wheel controls. Fit and finish better than most. BUT HERE IT COMES!!!!
Same driver same conditions needs new front brakes every 12,000 miles. I went 13,000 this last time and needed rotors. The brake pads are made of what, cardboard? My Chevy, my Sonata and my Accent all go 35,000 to 45,000 per set of pads. In 14 months I've driven 42,000 miles, 95% highway and I'm on my 4th set of front pads. The maintenance on this car is a killer. The dealer said that aftermarket pads did't fit the AWD model. Customer Service is very non responsive.
I would recommend it if you drive lease milage only or you will be paying double the value of the vehicle in brake jobs alone. I was sitting in waiting room with XL-7 Owner who has 40K on the vehicle and original brakes. Cheap car, CHEAP BRAKES? If you don't pay $25,000 for the car they'll get the additional $10,000 from you in parts and labor.
Does anyone else have this problem? Is my Aerio a lemon?...read morehide
