2008 Suzuki SX4 Crossover
There are 15 user reviews for the Base AWD trim shown below
- It is a comfortable ride, AWD experience is wonderful, it fits well in parking spaces, design great
- The acceleration is a major con..but it's decent, the MPG I get averages around 26-27 MPG=ok
Personally, I love this car. I got it in May 2007 because I needed a reliable vehicle for college. I was initially looking @ a Scion tC 2006 in dark blue but it did not have the AWD capability, so (my dad told me - hah) I got the sX4 and do not regret it. It has great passenger room for a smaller car, the trunk is large enough for what I have to pack in there, the folding seats enables more room, and the color I chose rocks..=black! It also has intriguing windshield wipers..the left one is larger than the right so that it allows the driver to have an optimal view of the roadway, which I thought was neat. I haven't had need to use the roof rack yet, but it's always there if need be! I love the sound system...I pump up the music and it does the job...I am at 10,700 or so miles and going strong...no big problems yet...+ the hubcaps are alloy (I think?) and look sweet...they aren't plastic and cheap looking =)
I highly recommend this car ..it works well for highway roadtrips and going to work or school in!...read morehide

- Snow capability, sporty look, comfort, storage
- small gas tank
I bought this car in Sept. 07 and so far have put about 6000 miles on it. I love this car! I knew when I bought the car that I would be moving to Alaska and therefore needed a car that handles well in the snow. This is the least expensive AWD car that I could find that also has storage space. I love th 60/40 split in the back seat which makes it easy to store things even with backseat passengers. So far this winter there have been at least three or four snow storms and this car does so well. I have a rather steep drive way and this car can make it up the drive in 8inches of snow without a problem. Would absolutely recommend this car to anyone looking for a sporty inexpensive AWD vehicle....read morehide

- AWD feature, 4WD lock-up, 4 disc brakes, rear leg room
- quirky windshield wipers (one long and the other very short), small cargo area
We bought a 2007 base model with automatic transmission on Dec. 23, 2007. We live in a rural area in Central Washington. My wife is the regular user of the vehicle. So far she has put in 27,000 miles on it. Besides the regular oil change every 3,000 miles, we haven't done anythiong else. This winter we have put on four Winterforce snow tires to improve its deep snow capability across the Cascades and the 600-foot gravel driveway of our home.
The snow prowess stands this little car out over the Mazda Tribute she used to have and the Grand Vitara that I drive, both of which are tall and jittery. However, it does not pick up as quickly as one desires it. And it feels weak on long hills over the Cascades. I suspect a manual transmission would well take care of the above two complaints. If gas mileage is what the reader is interested, the followinging is the gas mileage log of the car. Mind you we live in a rural area where there is no traffic jam, and minimum trafic lights.

- Exceptional Value, Best HP in class, AWD, Compliments from everyone
- Should come standard with arm rest. However, for $200 and I put in one AND fog lights
I get compliments on this car all the time. Most say, "Wow, I love that car! What exactly is it?" It looks like a Mini Cooper mixed with a VW Bug on steroids. I've upgraded mine with better looking rims and replaced the OEM tires with all season Kumho's. I also added fog lights (Suzuki charges about $450 for the lighs - that includes install charge) but I did it with a friend with $20 lights from Auto Zone and they look and work great. I also added an armrest. Overall, I really love the performance, the gas milage, the look and feel of the car. If you want a unique car, one that's AWD, fun and sporty for under $15 K and you want over 20 mpg, this is the car to get. I bought mine used with 4k miles on it for 13500. You won't find a better option at that price. I recommend buying it used because it has a fully transferrable free 100,000 warranty on the powertrain.
Suzuki - Way of Life! And now the SX4 is a big part of mine......read morehide
