Frequently Asked Questions - Suzuki

Used Car Sales

What are the benefits of buying a used Suzuki?

The Suzuki range is known for its reliability and low running costs. Not only that, each Approved Used Suzuki from Hodgson Suzuki has been inspected by trained technicians to ensure there are no mechanical issues.

Is the warranty transferable between owners?

Every new Suzuki comes with a three-year or 60,000-mile warranty – whichever comes first. This is fully transferable, meaning if you purchase a car under three years old and with under 60,000 miles on the clock, the warranty is still valid.

I have purchased a used Suzuki product and I need an owner’s manual. How do I get one?

You can find the relevant owner’s handbook for your Suzuki by visiting the manufacturer website and entering your vehicle’s VIN.

Can I lease a used Suzuki car?

Yes you can. Our finance plans include the option to lease a used Suzuki on a long-term basis, meaning you don’t have to worry about depreciation. If you’d like to lease a Suzuki on a short-term basis, you can do so from a reputable car hire company.

Are used Suzuki cars reliable?

Suzuki cars are manufactured to the highest standards using precision engineering and quality parts and components. They therefore have a reputation for reliability. In addition, each of our Approved Used vehicles has been thoroughly inspected by a technician to ensure there are no mechanical issues, meaning you can be sure your purchase will be dependable.

Which is the best used Suzuki car?

The best used Suzuki car for you depends on your specific needs. If it’s a hot hatch you want, the Swift or Celerio is ideal, while if you need something bigger try the SX4 S-Cross or the Vitara. You can browse our range of used cars online to see which suits you best. Each comes with mileage, fuel type, transmission and full spec details so you can make an informed choice.

Will you accept my used Suzuki car as a part exchange?

Of course. Simply bring your vehicle to us and we’ll inspect it and provide a fair valuation. You can then use this as a deposit for your next model.

How are new Suzuki cars taxed?

What warranty is offered with a new vehicle?

All new Suzuki vehicles come with a three-year or 60,000-mile warranty – whichever comes first. They also come with a 12-year anti-perforation warranty as standard.

Why does my Suzuki not come with a spare tyre?

Due to the advancement in tyre technology, modern cars rarely require the use of a spare wheel. Instead, you’ll find a repair kit with an air compressor and a can of sealer. This will enable you to get to your nearest service centre for a replacement.
