Not at all surprised to hear this.
Could they build it again? Probably not, 'cuz it'd need crush zones and safety
gadgets that would make it weigh 50% more than it did just a few years ago.
Safety extremists, environmental extremists, and NIMBYs will ruin this country
if they are not defeated.
Huh? The newest Suzukis sold in the U.S. don't have crush zones and safety
gadgets that the Suzuki Swift did not. For those who don't know, the Suzuki
Swift was given a 3-cylinder one-liter engine and a Geo badge and sold at
North American GM dealers as a "Geo Metro". There is nothing stopping
Suzuki from selling the Swift in North America today, if they wanted to.
They sell similar (in terms of fuel efficiency) vehicles in other countries
still today (2008 model year). -Dave
