Mazda 2 Hatchback VS Suzuki Swift
WHICH car is just overall less likely to breakdown and run in to repair costs
when things start going south. Should I steer away from CVT?
Mazda is on my favored cars list, along with Lexus and Toyota. Suzuki cars aren't that reliable. Any CVT is less reliable than the good ol' automatic. But stay away from Nissan CVTs. they're made in Mexico and need constant maintenance to run anywhere near right.
Stay away from Suzuki, they make great motorcycles but their vehicles not so good. Best Asian vehicles Honda, Toyota and Mazda in that order. The rest are on the do not buy list.
