thanks for the reply
I called the dealer on tuesday and told them that the shimmy was still there. the man said he was going to call and see if there were any reported problems. I still have not heard back from him. Plan to call again tomorrow
So frustrated that I have to take the brand new car to service department again and again.
let me know how it's going.
Recently my front end started to shake once I hit about 60 and then stops between 70 and 80 where it starts again. After putting it in the air, I found a broken inner tie rod on the driver side. The part is about $40 and labor is going to be about $300. Anyone replace this themselves?
I expected. It's a 5 speed. A/C, it's the middle version available in '08.
Checked today, it's getting 31.3 mpg. I haven't had even 1 problem.
It doesn't matter whether it's in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive the mileage
doesn't alter. The mileage does lower to 30.9 during the winter months.
From my experience I would recommend it. I change the oil and filter every
3,000 to 3,500 miles. I have always used 15w40 Diesel oil.
www.pure-gas.org lists ethanol-free fuel by state.
I have none locally, but when I travel long-distance, I enter the coordinates into my GPS and use ethanol-free fuel exclusively where its available for improved performance and fuel economy.
I have been looking at this car now for 3 years or so. I really like it. When the time comes, I will be driving this car first.
I can't find a car that I like except for the 2012 Suzuki SX :confuse: 4. Yet some website said it was the 7th unsafe car to drive. Is this true?
Does anyone have a 2011 or 2012 that can share some of their experiences with me. This model seems to have everything I want in a crossover/hatchback and yet not so much money. I love the standard look not funkey as alot of them seem to be getting....funk is only cute with the tiny ones, not on crossovers or hatchbacks.
We bought a 2012 Suzuki SX4 in March I think...maybe April? Anyway, I researched it as well, and I was surprised to see that 7th unsafest article. They added stability control on the 2012, and the research I did reflected what your other reply did...maybe not the totally safest in the world, but not the 7th unsafest from what I saw. I used to have a Tracker, and this car drives like my manual Tracker did several years ago (90s). It has a sporty feel to it so I feel as if I get a sporty car that is plenty big for my 8 year olds to grow up in, tons of trunk space, and although I wouldn't take a curve at 75 in it...I wouldn't take one in really any vehicle.
I think if you are considering cars that are affordable and roomy enough for a couple of kids...maybe even three...and two adults, plenty of trunk space, and a sporty ride (this is not a luxury smooth super ride, but you aren't paying for one and the ride is fun and we enjoy it), and that are reasonably safe it isn't a bad idea. I wish my remote entry thing had a trunk release on it, but otherwise so far I wouldn't change anything else.
As for the interior, I'm not sure why people would complain. I am short, and this seat is up high enough for me to see well, I can reach controls, and there is plenty of room. There is room in the cabin for all four of us and another in the back if they had a friend with us, and it's the first car I ever had that I really felt comfortable driving. I am guessing it wasn't made for tall people maybe, but since it is higher than some cars I think there is plenty of room for anyone.
We don't regret the choice at all so far, and the warranty is nice, too. The used cars we considered cost almost or as much as this car new, and we have a great warranty that we wouldn't have had with the high mileage used ones. The service people have made sure we know they are there if we need them, too, and maybe it isn't perfect, but we really like it so far. I even got a color I love.
The government has successfully convinced people
that NO one has to be responsible anymore.
Of course, it's really significant if you're one of the ones affected.
Stability control is a big plus imho.
will make my (new to be) Suzuki unique and will stand out in the parking lot as a different vehicle from all the rest. I like that part. I'm going out today to purchase one. Sedan vs hatchback but want front wheel drive regardless. I don't need AWD. Hope they have what I want as there are very few dealers in my area and I have to travel a long way to get to one.
And please let us know what you get!
