Bought a set of Firestone FR380 - price 620. reviews put it as an slightly above average tyre at 2.8/5. There was a recall in 2008-2009 for insufficient thread base gauge (size 235 75 15), mine were manufactured in 2012 (215 60 16). So far nice handling, no road noise, kinda soft side walls though. ...

YA21S = M15A/M16A???

On the metal tag in the engine bay of the sx4 the type is YA21S.

Research is showing that this is equal to the M15A engine, is this true??

Always presumed it to be M16A. Which is it?

Re: Review of Suzuki SX4 Crossover

86k....As I said, the car got some roughin up on those roads...the wiper fluid motor had leaks at the seals, so they changed the entire unit under warranty! I have 5 months to make 3 years owning the car.

Car drives almost like new, but it is expensive to maintain and it is small.
