In spite of its recently announced bankruptcy and impending withdrawal from the U.S., Suzuki made changes to its lineup for 2013--and we think savvy shoppers will find some great deals as a result of the brand's departure. For those concerned about buying a vehicle from a defunct brand, you should know that only Suzuki's U.S. arm is closing. The Japanese automaker's prospects look better in other markets and at home. Suzuki says it will honor all warranty claims in the U.S., even after it leaves this market. Read on to learn more about changes for the new Suzuki cars, trucks and SUVs.
