Hello everyone. I recently bought a 2010 Suzuki Kizashi. Just wanted to introduce myself, and say hello to everyone. I live in Madison WI. Anyway here is a little more about my new(ish) ride.

2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS
6-Speed Manual
Front Wheel Drive
Dark Tinted Windows
Blacked out wheels

I have owned the car for about a month now, and so far I have put new tires on it, changed the oil, installed brighter bulbs, full alignment. Replacing rear wheel bearings this Saturday. Bought it from a guy in Chicago with 78,660 miles on the clock, and paid just $3,500!!! Its a salvage title, but runs and drives real solid.

Congrats and welcome. Do you know the full extent of why it's a salvage title? What was it involved in?

From the research I did, it seems like the car got a serious front end hit. The car has changed hands a few times.

Are you sure it's the starter? A battery is much more likely given the colder temperatures and the likelihood of the car sitting around a while before you bought it. Starters seldom go out and if so, it's often the solenoid instead of the actual starter motor.

Congrats!! You got yourself a good deal for such a nice car. It still looks very good by the way. Welcome to the forum.
