Never buy a 1.6 l car, bad cars that come with lots of problems


I’d avoid the colour blue too, and don’t buy cars on Wednesdays - these cars come with lots of problems.

If you have a dpf you've got a diesel 1.6. This isn't a diesel 1.6 engine.

I'm not sure there are 'lots of problems' with the 1.6 engine. What has been your experience? Go have a look on the viva vitara users forum and very few problems have been discussed with the new vitara.

You need to register.
If I was buying the basic SZ4 I think the one thing you would definitely want to add would be reversing sensors and would be about £200-300 I think from the dealer.

I've got the 1.4 turbo for almost 2 years now and not had any issues at all

I have a 1.4 l too, cars amazing and hardly any problems, but even my friend with his 1.6l has problems, I would go with a 1.4 l or 2.0l, hardly any problems with them even in the long run

If I was buying today I would very very interested in this. Seems a lot of value.
Not interested in "my friend" one of anecdotes, these count for nothing. Every single car that was ever made has a "my friend has had problems".

I'm a recent convert to Suzuki. I've bought three now (one for wifey, one for daughter-in-law & finally one for me). I'm extremely impressed by the value-for-money you get in Suzuki's cars; especially if you buy pre-reg or low mileage cars.
My son has a Qashqai that he bought used for £14k. He really likes it. However considering how new it was, he's had his fair share of silly things going wrong with it. If he ever wants to change it, I'd advise him to put the Vitara on his list.

The 1.4 turbo is a much better engine and only comes with higher spec. Not sure they can be compared.
Are these similar to a qashqai sort of size

My partner has a old swift and for a budget car when new it’s served her well and a work friend had a very old liana and bought it for buttons, he never serviced it and basically abused it daily and yet he got 4 trouble free Years out of it. Yes they aren’t the most refined brand, but for the price they get my vote.

Nissan are awful IMO these days, I’ve heard of far too many CVT issues and engine troubles ( that quite frankly a Japanese car should never have ) with their newer stuff to recommend one. But I suppose they do use a lot of Renault stuff underneath.

Why would he love a new car he's had lots of problems with and why would you suggest another same brand newish low end car to replace? I've had a 2002 VW for over 4 years now and only had 2 issues during that time doing 200 miles/week (1 was window not working so didn't affect driving)

I have a higher spec version of this car (vitara s) - fantastic car and great value for money!
Get the better spec'd model - you'll thank yourself in the long run. Plus when it comes to selling the car in the future you'll likely recoup more of your money.

The LED front lights on the higher spec look fantastic and really light up the road. Projector halogens aren't always the best although they are deemed to be better than the reflector halogen housing set-up. You could always fit Philips/Osram uprated bulbs to make them perform/look better if you go for the lower spec'd model.

Yep, really enjoying the two Suzukis we bought last year - an Ignis and Vitara. Really pleased with the value for money and surprisingly good drive comfort in both. We ditched both a VW Tiguan and a Nissan Juke for the Suzukis and haven't looked back.

I didn't read all the post, I assumed it was a diesel car, my mistake

Three-year or 60,000-miles warranty (whichever comes first).

I agree with this guy...... to a certain extent. A heavy car like this one with a 1.6 petrol engine will cost more to run than a 1.6 Diesel which would be an ideal size engine for the weight of the car. Personally I'd rather get a 1.9 Diesel or 1.8 petrol upwards for piece of mind.
