How many miles is this vehicle good for? Looking at a vehicle with over 100,000 miles. Does it last for 300,000 like toyota or honda?

NO. Suzuki cars are not as well engineered as a Honda or Toyota. Or anything else for that matter, I put it in the Yugo class. POS car in my opinion.

That last slanderous comment is not true at all. We have a 180,000 mile Suzuki Forenza wagon with original motor and tranny still going strong. We have had 5 Suzuki's and they are the most reliable vehicles ever but you have to actually perform routine maintenance.

Thank you. I have a 2005 Suzuki Firenza I bought it used in 2011 with 40000 miles and it now has 116000. I got an excellent price on it. It has traveled to Pennsylvania, California, Las Vegas a couple times, Texas a couple times, California, Oklahoma, all over Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming. New Mexico. Lot of hghway miles. No accidents. I did unfortunately blow the head gasket and had to have the transmission replaced due to accidentally driving over a curb I didn't see and tearing a hole in the casing. But other than that just routine maintenance. The headlamp wiring was recalled by Suzuki but they fixed that right away. Only problem is now is the company no longer makes new parts for this model of vehicle. So if something does break and need to be replaced they have to find a part off a junk car to replace it with.

We replaced the head gasket at 180,000 miles. A Suzuki Forenza with 116,000 miles should go another 100,000 miles plus if the maintenance schedule is followed in the owners manual. We get parts online with no problems and use a Suzuki dealer also. Suzuki will return to the USA in 2020. Consumer Reports hated Suzuki from the start and did a good job hurting the company until they left the US market.
