Re: that s really make me sad....

Suzuki Automobiles have never been very popular down here.

More people without jobs.

Suzuki Automobiles were never popular here in Canada. We have a local dealer 1/2 hour away, which I pass by each time I visit the city.

Re: that s really make me sad....

I would love to have a stock Samurai,
manual steering, tiny tires and all.

Hopefully they bounce back after restructuring.

Re: that s really make me sad....

I was just going to mention the Samurai, probably the only Suzuki vehicle that was popular here.

Suzuki should stop making cars, at least in the US. I've never been a fan.

Re: that s really make me sad....

I'm not so sure they've ever really made a cool car IMHO. The Swift was probably as close as it was going to get... but the Samurai was shite (even in Black )

Stick to bikes and ATVs.

Bad for Automotive workers for sure...

But maybe good for the motorcycle side, interesting to see what they end up doing to "Enhance" thier motorcycle / ATV position in the States.
