Suzuki sold 21,188 cars, SUVs and pickup trucks through October 2012, which is 5 percent less than it sold in the first 10 months of 2011.


American Suzuki Motor Corp. filed for bankruptcy Nov. 5, 2012, and said it would eliminate its U.S. automobile sales arm. If you own a Suzuki or are thinking of buying one, find out how the bankruptcy will affect you. Suzuki plans to continue to sell motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and marine equipment in the U.S.

Though a 5 percent decline may not sound like much, it comes while new vehicle sales in the U.S. were up 14 percent for the year.

Suzuki has been on a slippery slope in the U.S. since 2007; that’s when it sold more than 100,000 vehicles. With an aging and limited product line, sales have gone down since and fell to 26,618 in 2011 in the U.S.
