    Is anyone having trouble with the Climate Control? I can't choose airflow direction,(dash or floor vents) without the system cancelling Auto Mode. the Auto Mode cancells if I change fan speed. If I change recirculation the Auto Mode cancells. My temp controls need to be recalibrated. And sometimes my display is scrambled.

    That's how auto AC systems work. If you push a button to manually change something that the auto setting has decided to use, then it turns off the auto setting. The system automatically assumes that since you are changing a setting, then you obviously want to manually control it. Nothing wrong with your AC system as fas as that is concerned.

    Thanks for the info. I just wanted to know if that's a system design. I've owned other cars with climate control and I was able to adjust air flow etc. without cancelling Auto Mode.
    I called Suzuki and they were going to refer it to a Tech and call me back. I'm still waiting for a call. That was about 2 wks age.

    Just curious, what was wrong with the climate control. I've had some problems with mine: air flow(dash, floor vents) fan speed, recirculation, and scrambled display
  • I have had trouble with the outside temp read out when the temp is in the middle - high 90's. It almost appears as if it is flashing 88 very fast.
    Works properly on lower outside temps.
  • so far so good the new ecm has taken away the starting problems and seems to have more power in the bottom end.
  • I am happy to report since I got my reflash things are still going fine with my verona.
  • Looks like I will get the re flash. I was not keen on having the dealer mess with a good thing, but if it will do away with the wait to start driving without harm than I will do it. Look at the bright side our vehicles are not catching fire or having transmissions go bad.
  • Does anyone know when the 05 Veronas hit the dealer showrooms? Any major changes? Is Suzuki planning a bigger motor for this puppy?

    Sounds like reflashing may have gotten rid of at least one annoyance.
  • Check out my post awhile back. The 2005 Verona gets iridium spark plugs, new emission ratings, and side-impact airbags.

    According to Motor Trend, the 2005 Verona will also receive a tool-kit and a tire-pressure monitoring system. I wonder what the prices will be? Considering that Suzuki hiked the price of the 2004 model by $700 mid-year, I wouldn't be surprised to see a notable increase for the 2005 model, especially with the extra standard equipment.

    On a side note, the Iridium spark plugs should improve the gas mileage a little bit. At 5k miles, I swapped my Accord's stock platinum plugs with Denso Iridium plugs and my average gas mileage increased by 2 mpg in town. So 2004 Verona owners may want to consider Iridium plugs if they're not happy with the mileage they're getting.
  • I was just informed today that the verona has head problems. The number 6 valve guide drops out.Another wounderful gift from the A.S.M.C.
  • Could you please give us a link? I can't seem to find anything about valve problems.
  • No I am sorry I can not give you the information to access suzuki tec line support or the web site.
  • Yes, Motor Trend is right...but so was I in my earlier post.
  • One of the local Suzuki dealers has a big newspaper ad offering upto $10,000 in cash rewards for all ( new and used ) vehicles purchased at his dealership from September 16th to 18th ( 3 days ).
    But he wouldn't say on the phone how much of a cash reward one would get for buying a Verona. He wants me to go to the dealership to find that out.

    If someone were to get the Verona for $14,000 ( after the rewards ), is that a good deal? I am worried about all the problems people have mentioned in this forum.
  • I just went to the dealer to drop of my XL7 for maintenance and my dealer had 1 2005 Verona EX in the back, along with some other 05 Suzukis. One thing that I did notice was that the leather felt more supple. Has anyone else had a chance to sit in an 05 Verona EX yet??? BTW, the 2005 Suzuki brochures (XL7, Forenza, Verona) are in stock and this year each car has a BIG brochure all by itself. This was the first year Suzuki has done this!!! :-D
  • 20,000 miles and one year behind the Verona. The only problem is the ECM. and that is being taken care of on Tuesday. Even without the ECM. fix the car has ran fine if you let it run for a few minutes before taking off. I have the base model with a power sunroof installed at the time of purchase. The car is still solid no rattles or loose bits. I chose not to go with leather due to the fact that my last couple of cars had it and I liked the solid fabric color. For the money I like the car. I live about 40 miles from the dealer and this will be only the second time I have had to go back, not bad for a new model year. The first time I went was due to a check engine light that was caused by the gas cap being loose. Make sure your gas cap is kept nice and snug.

    Relax, I was just adding a few minor details that you left out of your post. I wasn't correcting you, so no reason to be defensive :)
  • After calling the dealer yesterday to schedule an appointment for the ecm recall, the service manager told me to be there this morning at 7:30. I informed him that I lived 40 miles from the dealer and would have to take time off work to come in. When I arrived I waited 30 minutes for him to tell me they did not have the ecm and suzuki shouldn't have sent the letter out before all dealers had the parts. What a bunch of crap. Now I have to wait for the part and then do it all over again. Too bad my old Daewoo dealer didn't get the Suzuki franchise. This never happened with them.
  • man that would p me off in a milli second! Anyway I have the new ecm and wait will be worth your while. The car is really great with this in. Its the diffrance between night and day. Now I think
    suzuki has done this right.Now I would like to say I think suzuki is trying very hard in fixing these cars.If they got this right now look out this is one nice ride for the buck!
  • Hey russm3, would you please let us know if the new ecm has any affect on mileage? Thanks.
  • Dealer called and said the ECM was in so I went Friday and had it done. Seemed to drive better on the way home but it was sort of hard to tell. I'll know more later, especially in the mornings.
  • We went for a ride on Sunday for the day in all kinds of traffic highway through town and we got 26 mpg the speeds were from 80 to 30 mo sty 65 to 70 though don,t know if this will help you out.
  • The ECM replacement has helped a lot with the morning starts. Not rough any more in the morning and dosen't try to stall out. The problem I am having is when you are driving and let off the gas, the car chug chug chugs like it is "surging" or looking for a different gear. It is like the motor is speeding up and slowing down. Any one else with this problem? My mileage over the weekend was up to 27.5, much better than the 23 I was getting before the ECM was replaced.
  • ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this is the problem I was having
    they adjusted the trans. when I was going about 40mph and it was shifting into 3rd the car would surge and you will feel this buck you. tell your dealer they can fix it.

    An update as to my problem with my Gas gauge on my Chevy Epica [ Verona ] I took it into my G M dealer they added some solvent to the gas tank and told me to run two or three tanks of gas through the engine and see if it will solve the problem, but no different than before, and was told the fuel pumps were of Europen origin and when they have a more definit solution they will let me now. Also had a recall notice from G.M to fix the E.C.M which they fixed promptly and the car starts now with no hesitation have now 3000 miles on the car very pleased with it.

    the car is really different with the new ecm I bought a used 2002 car for my work I won"t say the name but the suzuki is so much nicer to drive. The suzuki is so smooth and out handles the other car hands down.
