The Suzuki factory rep test drove my car while I was sitting next to him. He got 44.57 MPG in the city on a 20 mile test drive. He got 35.9 MPG highway on a 30 mile test drive. Their lawyer was also in the car.
After the test drive they had their service department put the findings on a service ticket.
We had a hearing before the State Attorney General's Office.
I lost because the fine print in the EPA estimate was within the legal range which can be as low as 12 MPG & still be OK.
I have driven like my dead grandma & can only get 16 MPG on a good day.
In general, Suzuki needs to take a good look at its engines to make them more efficient.
32mpg HWY at 65-70 mph with the AC on much of the time. I tend to drive conservatively in cars that don't offer much performance. I do like the Forenza from a bang for the buck standpoint. Comfort, brakes, and handling are decent too. I recently drove rental 2.5L Rabbit and got terrible mileage.. I just could not drive that car conservatively, it was too much fun. I also drove a Suzuki Grand Vitara; lots of road noise, noisy differential, crappy mileage. Our Forester is much better.
As far as actual Suzuki engines, many of their vehicles (not rebadges, but actual Suzuki built and engineered) are amoungst the most fuel efficient in the catagory.
Anyone remember the "Geo" Metro (Suzuki Swift) XFI which got 53 city, 58hwy?
