www.fitzmall.com has 2012 SX-4 crossovers AWD manual 6-speeds for $15.8K - which includes destination charge.
I bought my 2011 AWD Crossover from them and would buy another. I have a long commute of 55 miles each way and it is nearly all rural highway at 55 to 60 mpg, so I'm usually in 5th gear, occasionally upshifting into 6th at 60mph when traffic allows. My last 4 fill-ups yielded calculated mpg of 32.7, 32.4, 30.6, 32.1 using FWD only. I coast and rarely use the brakes. I always exceed EPA estimates - even with lousy E10 fuel. My worst fuel economy was a calculated 29.2 in snow using AWD. I have gotten as high as 35.7 on long interstate trips using ethanol-free gas (see: www.pure-gas.org).
After 9K miles, I like the car, although the manual trans is not the most crisp in the world.

“I don't think it's a big surprise given their lackluster sales performance of recent years. They have have low margin, low-priced cars with small volume. That's far from the ideal combination,” said Jessica Caldwell, an analyst with auto information company Edmunds.com.
The good news:
"Suzuki said it will continue to honor warranties and will provide automobile parts and service through its parts and service dealer network."

There are good deals to be had on the SX4s still left.
