American Suzuki Files For Bankruptcy, Will Stop Selling Cars In The U.S.

Suzuki won't be selling cars in the US anymore; their US distributor just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Oh, you're not surprised? Neither are we.

We don't hate the Kizashi and we very much like the not-for-the-USA Swift Sport, but we're not exactly moved by Suzuki's demise in the American car market. They had a tiny lineup, they hardly sold any of what they had, and a poor exchange rate kept the company's costs high.


Everyone's known that Suzuki's been on death watch for ages now.

The US distributor plans to focus on motorcycles, quads and engines. Moreover, existing warranties will be upheld and Suzuki's tiny dealer network will continue to provide parts and services.
