Topic: Has there ever been a Suzuki Reno in Lemons?

I've got a prime opportunity to scoop up a 2006 Suzuki Reno that would be an ideal Lemons car from a gentleman that owns a local CarQuest store. Although it does need a some work done too it. I recall seeing an article when I was digging through older blog posts here about some cars they'd like to see, and recall seeing a Reno on the list.

Regardless on if there has been, you should definitely get it.

Lemons is getting flooded with too many cheaty fast cars from "the other series". We need more butt terrible cars and the Reno is definitely that.

I'm using a Reno engine....

It's about NA/NB Miata fast in a light enough car with short gearing.

No idea how it would do in its original Suzuki/daewoo/opel shell.

We have never had a Reno, no. 10/10, bring it.

Interesting take. Of the quickest 10 cars Autobahn last weekend, I'm reasonably sure 8 of them have only ever raced Lemons. One of the two "others" is pretty basic car that has exceedingly quick drivers with a stock fuel tank.

There might be 2 (?) more "non-Lemons cars" in the Top 25 lap times, of which one is a duplicate of a hooptie Subaru that has been around Lemons for 10+ years.
