Top 5 Issues of Suzuki Liana

Top 5 Issues of Suzuki Liana

Opinions and reviews about Suzuki Liana always remained controversial since its launch. This sentiment affected the repute of the car in the market. I therefore decided to enlighten the readers about the factual Top 5 Issues of Suzuki Liana. Although I have also written a detailed review in one of my previous post that gives a comprehensive insight of Suzuki Liana, yet I feel that readers would like to know the Top 5 Issues of Suzuki Liana.

Anyways, lets talk about Top 5 Issues of Suzuki Liana…..

1. Poor Marketing by Company

Suzuki Co. Pakistan played a very vital role in defaming its own car at the time of launch. It appeared as if the company itself was not ready to handle Suzuki Liana. Which was equipped with the then state-of-the-art engine with excellent performance controlled by various sensors. Suzuki Pakistan was not ready in the following domains at the time of Suzuki Liana launch:-


Technicians’ Competence

The company technicians were not adequately trained to handle issues surfaced in newly launched Suzuki Liana.

Nonavailability of Testers

Suzuki Company did not have the required testers / equipment for fault code monitoring and tuning of the engine.

Nonavailability of CNG Kit Tuning Software

Suzuki Liana was launched with one of the best CNG Kit (Landirenzo Omegas) which required software-based adjustments / tuning, but at the time of launch, the company was not in possession of requisite software.

Poor Market Survey

Company failed to carryout market survey for identifying the right price value of the car. Suzuki Liana was launched at a price of PKR 1.3 million (approx $13000) which was considered expensive in comparison with its competitors i.e Honda City and Toyota Corolla.

2. Shape and Appearance

The Shape of Suzuki Liana always remained under criticism and considered to be ‘ugly’ world over. Suzuki Company have also tried to offer car facelift in some countries in order to give Suzuki Liana a new look, but the car failed to make its way through the competition.

3. Width to Height Ratio / Vision

Suzuki Liana’s width to height ratio is less which make the drive-ability a bit tricky during high speed turnings.

The driver’s front view is better due to seat height, however, the rear view is not good due to two reasons, which are:-

  1. Low front and high back shape of Suzuki Liana
  2. Backseat head-rests (SRS) restricts the rear view of driver

4. Expensive Spares and Repairs

Inexpensive spares and cheap repairs are the hallmark of Suzuki brand. However in case of Suzuki Liana the statement failed to qualify. Firstly, the car was launched at a relatively higher price, which was further complemented by expensive spares and repairs. This equation lead to the lack of interest of customers in Suzuki Liana. Moreover, like Suzuki company’s technicians, the local technicians were also not qualified enough to undertake repair of Suzuki Liana which ultimately resulted in an overall “bad’ review of the car.

5. Quality of Materials

After years of car usage, it has been observed that the quality of materials used for the interior of the car is not of good standard. Following issues have mostly been reported by Suzuki Liana users after 2 to 3 years of usage:-

  1. Cracks appear on dashboard.
  2. Low quality of glue on ceiling cloth often separates the cloth from ceiling panel.
  3. Interior pillar furnishing panels often get off-seated. Needs new clips / studs.
  4. Weather effects (fogging) start to appear on Headlights and back-lights usually after 5 years.
  5. In some cases rain water seeped inside the cabin and trunk due to improper sealing (rare cases).

      Bro, there is no such issues, same engine is also installed in Suzuki Jimny Jeep and Newer Suzuki Swift. This engine (M13a) is very fuel efficient and reliable. I mus share my experience that during my 7 years of Liana ownership, thrice at different points, the engine got extremely overheat due to radiator hose rupture, but Alhumdulillah the engine safely sustained these “heat strokes” without replacement of any engine part except the hoses alone.
      Regarding generator and gear, there is no problem experienced by me, nor has come to my notice as a design issue, some isolated cases depends on driving styles and timely maintenance. Other owners may also share their experience…..

      • Suzuki Liana Pk

        AoA, bro Pakistan assembled Suzuki Liana is equipped with M13a engine which is 1328cc. Though the car documents should be accurate, but as far as the car falls in 1300cc – 1799cc category, not an issue at all, just chill πŸ™‚

      • Suzuki Liana Pk

        There could be multiple reasons but firstly i’d recommend to check for minor leaks especially when engine is hot the hoses (radiator pipes) get pressurized and from a weaker point the water or steam leaks out. Secondly, get the radiator cap replaced with a genuine one. For more checks i’d recommend to go through my following blog it will give you some more clues:

      i am gong to buy its 2006 model. new engine installed, but not on book now. overall good maintained. what should be the market value to buy.?

      • Suzuki Liana Pk

        I’d recommend that car documents should be up to date, get the engine number updated in documented at your earliest convenience. Technically speaking changed engine should not be an issue.
        Well bro judging car price without seeing the car is little difficult, as it involves multiple variables. Bro just apply your best judgment and get help from your local mechanic, if possible. And above all, pray istikhara dua before making decision. Best of luck
