Benefits of Driving a 2008 Suzuki Forenza Sedan

The 2008 Suzuki Forenza sedan and wagon stand out in their respective classes with their attractive exterior styling, as well as for their generous standard equipment list and low prices. And like other Suzuki vehicles, the Forenza is covered by what Suzuki calls America's #1 Warranty, which provides powertrain coverage up to seven years or 100,000 miles.

What's new for 2008?

After Suzuki gave the Forenza a slight refresh in 2006, the 2008 Forenza arrives with no major changes over the 2007 version. Suzuki dropped the Forenza trims with anti-lock brakes and the Popular package. For 2008 the Convenience Package trim has standard steering wheel mounted audio controls and an alarm system.

Model Strengths

  • Unique styling
  • terrific warranty
  • extensive standard equipment
  • strong value.

Model Review

Thanks to the famous Pininfarina design studio, the 2008 Suzuki Forenza sedan and wagon boast styling that sets them apart from similarly-sized economy-minded vehicles. The front end of the Forenza, which was revised in 2006, has a smooth, sporty appearance and is complemented by body-color bumpers, trim, and door handles. Wagons get a bright roof rails.

2008 Suzuki Forenza: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

The South Korean-built Forenza is among the most affordable vehicles of its type. For 2008, the Forenza is basically a carryover with only minor changes.

The Forenza's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 127 horsepower and drives the front wheels via either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. It rides on MacPherson struts up front and a dual-link suspension in the rear, with variable-assist power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.

Front and front-side airbags are standard across the line. Air conditioning, a CD stereo and power locks, windows, and heated mirrors are standard on the base Forenza, with anti-lock brakes, cruise control, fog lamps, keyless entry, and a power sunroof available on the Premium version.

Changes for 2008 are limited to new chrome door handles, and standard fog lamps and steering wheel audio controls on the Convenience package. Bluetooth is a new option.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Drivetrain 7 Years/100,000 Miles
Corrosion 3 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 3 Years/36,000 Miles
