    Paul you can actually change what that is displaying from current mpg to average mpg and then distance to empty. I find the current mpg reading particularly useful when I am trying to get the best mileage. YMMV (pun intended)

    Hey everybody. New guy from Ohio here. New to the SX4, but not to Suzuki's or forums in general. I've owned a 95 Sidekick, and currently have a lifted 96 Tracker 4 door in my stable. Will take a while to become familiar with forums again.

    Welcome! Tell us about your SX4.
    There are some differences across years and body styles but we are a pretty knowledgeable and resourceful group and can help with just about all of them.

    Thank you for the welcome. I picked up this 09 Hatch about 4, maybe 5 weeks ago. It's a funky blueish charcoal color, 5 spd manual, has 177K miles and I have no idea what package it is.

    We could help you figure that out. What options does it have, ie awd, navi, heated seats, 6 disk changer, keyless start, etc? Certain options only came on certain packages.

    Fair enough. It does have the AWD. It was one of the reasons I bought it. Ohio winters can be brutal. It did have navi at one time I'm suspecting. One of the previous owners removed the Garmin unit and cut the main cable going into that turtle shell hump. No heated seats, no remote start (that I'm aware of). Manual trans. Did not have the fogs, but i was able to find a complete front bumper that did have the fogs and the bumper extensions with the lower valance. Also snagged the OEM switch. The stereo......single disc (non functioning) about to be replaced with an Alpine CDE-151. Need to keep with the red LED theme.

    That sounds like the technology package, same as my first one.

    Thank you. That piece if info may come in handy when is comes to ordering parts. From what I'm reading, may parts are interchangeable between model years with only slight tweaks from 10+.

    New member with my first Suzuki, I thoroughly enjoy having this machine. I traded my '06 Chevy Avalanche Z71 in towards this. I have picked up a set of OEM '09 SX4 17" wheels to swap on soon, I'm running a set of half used winter tires on the stock 16" alloy wheels.

    Welcome! That's an impressive list of cars you have there! Bravo to you for running seasonal tires, I'm a big advocate of the practice myself.
    Are you planning on doing anything with the SX4 or leaving it stock?
