    Default Liana, success or failure?

    Suzuki Liana was launched with very high hopes in Pakistan back in 2005 (started assembling in 2006) .. was also called as the best Suzuki ever produced in Pakistani market. Though its about 3 years Liana is present in the market but somehow unable to grasp the market. Although it offers so much in a comparatively low price tag, the worst quality issues from PakSuzuki are very frequently found in the Lianas. Rxi is the only version which is somewhat being sold. other versions like LXI, Eminent & Sport have seen a tough time here. Competitors like Xli and City are the other main factors.. but even globally Liana's life is too short.. it was launched in 2001 and was 'discontinued' globally in 2006, just when it started to assemble in Pakistan

    What could be the reason that this car (which seems very nice in its package) couldn't do well both locally and globally? or we should wait more and see if it gains its repo...??

    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    @lotus:agree with you....road clearance is an important factor in Pakistan.
    This suggestion should also go to Civic and Vitz..they have same issues.

    btw, don't many people intentionally lower their rides and put bumper extensions and side skirts to increase the visual appeal? this is by default inbuilt in every Liana, even most basic model.

    this is a good time for PakSuzuki to boost the sales of liana by "NOT" increasing its prices... as every other car prices are shooting up, Liana remains the only sensible option within 10 laks range as new honda city as expected in near future and rumors are that the price will start from 12 lacs
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    what is the actual ground clearance of Liana? and how much is the cabin volume? compared to City's clearance (160mm) & cabin volume (city has a 1245mm cabin height)

    I am using liana from past one year. No such serious problem in this car. Although QC is an issue which pak suzuki can improve. Over all its a good ride.

    ^ u own one right? so how is your experience with liana? i was having a chat with my mechanic & with the cng tuner the other day, about upgrading to Liana from my current cultus (whenever possible) both of them told me NOT to go for Liana, reason being that the engine is too complex and it runs good as long as everything is okay, and if some repair is needed its a hell of a task for technicians.. not too sure how much of this is true but the fact is, these kind of statements by the professionals sitting in the market are good enough to divert a consumer from making a decision in favor of a particular brand.. and guess what he recommended instead, the xli said its not that difficult to understand

    Pros=Liana has much smoother ride + its spacious, sitting/driving it is a joy, with beautiful looking cabin inside (Y)
    Cons=Liana rxi has weak Brakes (almost like xli/gli) or maybe its because mine's tyres are finished (35,000 kms on Generals), Spectra had Excellent brakes (Y)

    Liana is going to be a huge success since, corrolla & city are priced very high. Highest price for Liana eminent A/T is 11.50 approx and it offer a lot, good interior, okay exterior.

    I remember when the Liana was introduced in the US almost a decade ago, it had the most ridiculous dash i have ever seen. A small slit for digital speedometer info etc., and an awkward tall slant to it's styling cues didn't help either. Fast forward to PW, and from what i've seen of the Liana, the car had had a decent makeover and the dash looks real good and the engine is a proven mill from the Baleno. My question then is , why isn't it selling well in the Pak market?. It's got what it takes, IMO.
    Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

    It has a very complex engine. I experienced this while trying to rectify overheating problem on one of my boss's car

    Even THermostat cannot be cahnged without taking out the intake manifold

    Taking the Timing cover off means taking off, power steering pump, main pulley, AC compressor and one foundation, AFter that there are around 20 bolts to work with.

    If head gets deshaped there is not much room for facing as the timing cover is single peice and is a tight fit.

    Nightmare for any mechanic as even a gsket change required engine to be taken out and if you try to do it without taking it out, its a 5 hour job to dismantle only.

    Also heating problem is common as i found it in 6 7 oflianas around me all because of a stuck thermostat in close position.

    These are some facts i wanted to share.
    Keep a cool head and wear seatbelts!
