    March Suzuki Sales: Up 5%

    Well up a little is better than being down, right?

    GRAND VITARA: 547 (+6%)
    EQUATOR: 157 (-19%)
    SX4: 1,368 (+28%)
    KIZASHI 558 (-21%)
    OTHER*: 1 (-92%)
    --------------------------------------------
    TOTAL: 2631 (+5%)
    TOTAL YTD: 6561 (-2%)

    So, overall sales are in the red, but just by 2%. Still not sure what's going on with their social media, as it looks like it's been abandoned. I still find it crazy that the SX4 keeps selling "well" whereas the Kizashi continues to sell poorly even though it's the only one that's nationally advertised.

    Sx4 = cheap AWD. it's how Daddy keeps his little girl safe when she goes away to college in a place that snows lol. But seriously, parents probably see the cheap AWD sx4 as a great little car to keep kids safe in nasty weather.

    There's no need to beat about the bush - the SX4 is an awesome (though obscure) little car

    I wonder why our local Suzuki dealers don't advertise?

    Ditto. In fact, the only Suzuki dealer in Portland (there is another one just north of Portland in Vancouver, WA) was a used car dealer that took on Suzukis a few years ago. They only seem to push used stuff.

    I think Suzuki does need a fuel miser vehicle to bring people in.

    Swift — b-segment competitor. Give it a 40 MPG highway rating. This is the Suzuki U.S. buyers have been asking for since 2006.
    Jimny — Jeep Wrangler competitor. No other company in the U.S. has a vehicle with two solid axles other than Jeep. (Not including heavy-duty pickups)
    Turbo Kizashi — Kizashi needs more power. Period.
    Marketing, marketing, marketing — Suzuki makes good cars. Let people know about it! And start posting to your social media sites again so they stop looking like a place for unsatisfied customers to unload their dirty laundry (which is what the Suzuki Auto Facebook Page is starting to look like).

    I wish I knew what was really going on at this company.

    Hey I seem to remember seeing somewhere the Kizashi is more powerful than a couch!
    I do kinda feel like my SX4 trolls me a little bit in that department though. When I want a nice smooth roll I get a jerk, when I floor it it falls on its face.
