What a machine , especially in the snow !

I can honestly say after a lifetime of owning mostly Audi Quattro's /VWs ..(and prior to this Suzuki) , a Alfa Romeo Brera 3.2 q4 .. This is far the best car i have ever owned / driven . Being a mechanic myself am so impressed with the build quality / design / refinement /reliability/ road holding of this car . Also the feel good factor of actually owning a car that most of the" usual" car owners in this model category wouldn't be seen dead in ,simply because its a Suzuki .Well worth paying at least £10,000 more for a badge eh ? ( look at at the current value of a equivalent Audi a4 Quattro with this spec) . Its such a just a pity Suzuki didn't put into production their concept turbo model with a manual gearbox ( it would have sold like hot cakes, and would have become a real icon ). On saying that , its a excellent car as it is .. If driven correctly ,( unlike those who road tested / reviewed the car when new ) ..Use the paddles to change gear about 3k revs .. different car than in auto drive . Only drawback, not the best with fuel economy, but very clever to achieve 180 bhp from a four cylinder naturally aspirated ( non turbo ) engine . To sum up ..would i buy again .. Absolutely .. And with todays prices , so should you before legislation dictates that the internal combustion engine is no more ,and plugging in you car will be the new norm with a 40k plus price tag ... Finally , just noticed the next question .. would i recommend to a friend .. i did . and he has also never regretted purchasing / owning one for the last 3 years with no issues or faults .And like myself still loves it .... Well done Suzuki ..
