What should I consider when buying a used Suzuki SX4?

  • Want 4x4? Look for a Fiat Sedici too – they're a little harder to find, but more of them have all-wheel drive
  • On higher-priced examples look for good history, including tyres replaced as full sets on 4x4 models – not critical, but good practice
  • Also on 4x4 models – make sure the system is working properly. It can be locked in front wheel drive, left in auto with a variable front/rear split, or locked in 4x4
  • Interior trim is basic, but tough
  • Rust protection is fairly average, so check older examples particularly around the front crossmember
  • Later petrol models are preferable for power and economy
  • Check 1.6 diesel for EGR and turbo faults, also injector leaks
  • Check 1.9/2.0 diesel for starting issues, particulate filter blockage
