What year is your Kizashi? Did you buy it new or used? The Kizashi is a relatively problem-free vehicle but it does have some known issues. The factory alignment was off for earlier models (2010 and 2011) which caused rapid wear of the tires. The rear shocks also are known to go out prematurely in models from 2010 to 2012 due to a faulty rear bump stopper design. However, this is most prevalent in regions with high humidity, regular rain, and winter snow conditions.
The paint is also very delicate and prone to chipping so I advise getting a hood deflector or mask if you have a darker paint color like red, black, or blue. The lighter colors seem to do better or mask the damage better.
Overall, the car is very reliable and offers a great value and most owners have high satisfaction with their cars. However, the car was never popular in any global market and Suzuki has since discontinued production. This means that finding parts will be rather hard.
