Well, I guess suzuki is leaving the U.S. market. Although I'm not surprised, it kind of makes me sad as I like the cars they currently make and would probably buy one if I actually had money. http://blogs.wsj.com/drivers-seat/2012/11/05/american-suzuki-filing-chapter-11-leaving-u-s-car-market/ American Suzuki Motor Corp., the U.S. distributor for Japanese vehicle maker Suzuki Motor Corp., said it is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy-law protection and will stop selling new cars in the U.S. The move, which is no surprise to many in the car industry, is part of a restructuring plan under which Suzuki said it will focus on promoting its motorcycle, all-terrain-vehicle and marine engine businesses. The company made its name in the U.S. market through its fast and reliable motorcycles which have been popular since the 1970s. But its cars have never caught on here. Suzuki said its car division faced a number of “serious challenges” in the U.S. including poor sales, a limited number of models and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. Under the reorganization company said it will continue to honor its warranties and maintain a network of authorized parts and service outlets for its cars and light trucks.
