If the seller doesn't know, call Suzuki corporate. They can tell you the original purchase date by VIN and which of the 3 warranties are still in effect (complete, powertrain, and emission warranty).


If you are considering purchase, I recommend taking this advice seriously. If it was a fleet car, you'll know and you should negotiate (way down) accordingly.

Interesting as I recently noticed the same thing on the passenger side. Time for some glue it looks like. Good thing Dad worked for 3M for 40 years. They have glue and tape for everything! I'll have to have him get me some passenger side door right below the window trim glue. :D

I have exactly the same. I hope you have enough surface for normal glue. I used doublesided tape but it didnt hold. Its almost like if you need kit in stead of glue. Let me know. I need do a 2nd attempt :)

I was lucky and found a 2010 GTS Manual with 64000. Only had it now for 3 months and I am super impressed. Had a great deal on it too, I think just nobody knew what a great deal it was for 5500 at that mileage. I did some research and bought it right away.

A 2010 GTS manual is super rare. No CVT to worry about and low miles. If taken care of, that car will last you a very long time. Nice score....and welcome.

I'm biased but I think the GTS trim is the sweet spot for a manual Kizashi. It's not extremely difficult to find like the SLS manual yet it had most of the fun bits you'd want. The S was available in manual but is the base trim without things like the moonroof, Rockford Fosgate audio, fog lights, 18 inch wheels, or power seat. The SE was exclusively offered with a CVT.
