know a good lemon law attorney????
1-The airbag light (in the gage cluster)stays on in the dash. The first few times the dealer/I unplugged then re-plugged the connector under the passenger seat and the light went out for 6 months then 4 months then 2, now we the light will briefly go out, but come right back on.
2- the steering wheel emits a soft squeal when turning after the car warms up. Not like the old American cars deep in the engine compartment but more like right in the steering column. It's sort of a rubbing squeal like a dry wiper blade.
Any info or fixes on these two items would be appreciated. Thanks.
it has 37k and has developed a loud tap and the front end drowns bad.
A set of plugs and new wires may also help.The engine is pretty reliable other then these minor problems.
Hope that helps a little!
After they finally fixed some computer "glitch", all was well until the wheels seemed to want to pull to the right.
Okay for the good news. Some teenager sideswiped it last week and it was a total loss. Insurance co settled with me for far above the actual value. I'm takin the motor out of the lawnmower and attaching it to a shopping cart with the extra money. Now I feel like high maintenance. ~snort snort~
You get what ya pay for. Lesson learned.
I really need to know because I have a forenza with 78, 000 miles and it is doing the same thing that yours is: oil light & engine noise.
Had some trouble starting it today...is that normal for this car?
Reviews that I've read have been that it's a good deal for the money...and you get what you pay for. I'm hoping that I didn't buy a lemon!
Next problem: Steering wheel light with Exclaimation point! (left side of dash). This light repeatedly comes on - mostly in cold weather I am seeing (I live in MN). Took it to the dealer TWICE. First time, they couldn't find the problem - said it was "Low Steering Wheel fluid". They topped it off. Next day, Lights on again - drive car back (46 miles) and they find out it's a wire that is sorta loose and needed to be pushed back in ....$100 later and I'm on my way - - next day - YEP, light on again. Is anyone having this issue?? What is the problem?
Last B$*%H...The tires! I just bought new ALL WEATHER tires with 70K warranty Oct/07. After leaving the dealer, they said my tires are in terrible condition and that I desperately need NEW ONES! I took it back to GoodYear and they said that it is a CAR issue the way the car drives low to the ground, the "toe" and the make of this type of car - - that tires just don't last long. I put less than 18K on these tires over a year and 1/2 and I need NEW ones already! Is anyone else having this problem and if so, can you recommend a GREAT tire. This is ridiculous! :confuse:
So due to the fact that we have the crappy tires issue, is probably why the light keeps coming on. I did just buy new tires (all four) from Firestone but have not had the bearing checked yet, so I will update you when I find out. Should be next week when I get my tax return. I bought the car in February 2007.
To be honest it was my first Suzuki ever, and I am used to Chevrolets. I had, however, had my truck repossessed and am now stuck with this crappy, foreign car! I cannot wait until I pay it off I am turning it in and getting another Chevy. As long as GM is still around!
By the way, did you take your car to the dealer when you saw these problems? Take it somewhere else and get a second opinion. If you like Firestone, you can get better tires there and $22 is all it costs for them to check your front end out.
Honestly, I am just starting to have issues with this car and have been very pleased with it up until now. Would figure it's 3 years old right - - isn't that when the problems start to appear? I bought it brand new and it was a "will do for now" car when I got it as I HAD to dump my CRAPPY Jeep Grand Cherokee (please save yourself $ and NEVER EVER buy a Jeep! They are HORRIBLE trucks).
@ us that about! :confuse:
Good Year is honoring the 70K warranty but I have to pay the difference on what I've driven on teh tires (18K miles vs. 70K warranty) which means they are giving me $60/tire. I have to pay the $40 additional for a BETTER tire that may or may not last more than 20K miles. :mad:
Please let me know what Firestone says about your car. And I'll do the same.
I was stupid enough to believe that is Suzuki made a good motorcycle then their car would be good also. NO WAY, NO DEAL, NO HOW, HOW STUPID!
I have found the Range Selector Switch is bad. There is no way to buy the part over the counter and the warranty is 36K for this part.
Combined with the "road noise" and the other recalls I'm trading this POS as soon as I can............
I hope those who are searching for a Suzuki purchase find this info before they buy.
Suzuki does not have a "complaint" page anywhere and the dealers only want to charge you for what should be a "warranty" item.
VERY DISSATISFIED................I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER SUZUKI PRODUCT AND AM CONSIDERING NEVER BUYING ANOTHER FOREIGN CAR EVER AGAIN...............
GO AMERICAN, AT LEAST WE HAVE THE PARTS HERE.........
:mad: :sick: :lemon: :lemon: :lemon:
But.... anyways about the power steering... my pwr steering light almost always comes on during the winter/ when its cold out. Number one, you almost have to let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes. Number two... if you ever hear a knock/clicking sound that sounds like it'd be bad oil... THINK AGAIN. At one point I heard continuous knocking/clicking that sounded like it was a cold engine but would continue even after the engine was plenty warm (say like going 80 down the highway for at least a half hour). Well... my power steering pump blew out shortly after (inside a month or so?). Ran me between 170-180 for most places to get a rebuilt pump however I get a discount at car quest which I got it for about 155. And you may as well switch out the Serpentine belt while you're in there.
I've changed the spark plugs AGAIN because the day I blew my pump I changed them out and pulled out bosch splitfires (have any effect i don't know?) Changed out the spark plug cables, had a fuel line cleaner ran through it (otc stuff at walmart and the shop's own little thing where they run it through the whole system air filter switched and oil change for the hell of it. Nothing has worked so far. The only thing better is that and maybe its because of the warmer weather finally though, is the shop's fuel line/injector clean, but the car still has an extreme difficulty starting and I still have to time it right and pump the gas real quick for several seconds to get it completely turned over. Currently I'm getting either a pcm problem from a mech i know, possible bad coil pack from the dealership, or IDFK. I'm guessing at the pcm or a bad censor since it has trouble starting in cold weather.
Any takers? I haven't seen anyone w/ this particular problem yet........
btw.. DONT BUY SUZUKI. Every problem listed I've had thus far, headlights, Day lamps, tires, power steering, door handle lock on the driver side.... yeah. She ran BEAUTIFULLY until I hit 80k.
Oh btw... as far as the tranny, i had to have it flushed apparently right after i first bought it (april of 05 at 12k). No probs but its always slipped gears around 30mph and 2k rpms.
