My mom's '04 Heritage F-150 STX got sandwiched between two other pickup trucks in a collision and totalled. Prior to the collision, it was in good shape but it is 10+ years old....not much of a settlement check there. She's tasked me with finding her a new vehicle. I'm trying to steer her towards a 2006 Elantra but I found a Suzuki Forenza: New timing belt, tires, brakes, and plugs with less mileage. I am not that concerned about the engine. The Holden 2.0 is fairly gutless but if the timing belt is maintained it seems to be okay. The interior fabrics are suprisingly nice for such a cheap car and the paint and body is in remarkably good condition I don't know anything about the automatic. I've driven the manuals. Sloppy shifter, but I ignored the automatics. I know the basic things. It's a Daewoo copy of a ZF and its original range sensor is a bit sketchy....that's it. My mom's retired. It might do 6000 miles a year. Any experience with these transmissions?
