Don't take my word for it.

You can read about it here:

Yep.
It's a dying company.
Sold a paltry 2.867 million vehicles.

:roll:

Poor little Suzuki...

Am I reading this wrong??

Most of their numbers are up and the ones that are down, are barely down..

Probably has to due with their departure from North America the last 2 years..

Tongue in cheek comment from Phil there, Suzuki is doing very well worldwide, it's a shame they have pulled out of the US but thats just indicative of the market, Suzuki only make small cars and the average American it would seem dosen't feel safe in a small car.

This forum has had a lot of people come and go over the years, out of the 3 suzuki forums I lurk, Redlinegti.com is at one end of the spectrum, lots of gti's, performance and racing guys,whereas GMF is at the other end of the spectrum, mostly 3 cyl and focused on fuel economy, Teamswift sits somewhere in between, while TS and GMF are both North American focused you tend to find there is a lot less activity here because guys pretty much only talk about cars, no discussions here on guns and constitutional rights, politics or religions or what I ate last night for dinner or how many pizzas I delivered in my metro, it's not a criticism of GMF just an observation that TS is less of a social media site.

Specially if you live in Texas. If you drink beer, swear, have guns . Driving a small car is not cool. Its more like walking out naked in the middle of the day :mrgreen:
