    Default Suzuki leaving US market



    A shame, but the last great Suzuki was the Samurai. Not sure it is really any loss at this point.

    I agree. I owned a brand new Suzuki Swift in 98. It was a piece of junk that spent 3 months of it's first year getting repaired. One time sitting for 2 months waiting for the dealership to get the parts for second gear synchronizor. Finally stopped paying and called them to tow it away when they threatened repossession. They then charged me for the repairs that were supposed to be warranty work. 14 years later they still send me collection letters for double the cost of the car originally. Good riddance to Suzuki, hooray American auto companies!

    x3. Consumer Reports probably gets some credit for it too, the job they did on the Samurai was shameful.

    They did the same basic report on the CJ5 for rollovers, but the CJ7 was much less prone, and of course Jeep just couldn't leave the US market.

    I think it also inspired the leaf spring / rear track bar combo in the YJs.

    It doesn't surprise me. I normally go to SEMA every year and there has been almost no aftermarket for their vehicles.

    I think your missing the point. There is no aftermarket for the cars, or offroad. In other words none of the newer Suzuki's are worth companies making performance products. Same thing happened before Isuzu left.

    I was going to say the same. There was a reason Isuzu left. Any apparently Mitsubishi is the next Japanese manufacturer on the list. Nissan is apparently just behind Mitsubishi, which would be a real shame. At least Nissan has some some decent products.
