  • The problem with the vanishing Time/temp display is another common Suzuki defect. Make a lot of noise with Suzuki ..... who knows ....you may get a replacement for free.
  • Your brakes wear out quickly ...Hmmmmm ....let me tell you a story about my 2003 Aerio SX ....... I remember the Saturday morning in November 2002 I picked up my brand new 2003 silver SX hatch back from Brampton Suzuki (Toronto, Canada). Right off…
  • My brakes required replacement with 8 Kms. on the car. Thats right folks !! The first trip from the dealer in a brand new car and the front discs were so badly warped they needed replacement!!! I hear Suzuki dealers don't like this site. Maybe they…
  • I have a 2003 SX fastback with 135,000 Kms (75,000 Miles) on it. Gas millage has been OK but not great. Lately its been fantastic!!!! The car uses very little gas sitting at the dealer waiting for major parts to be replaced.
  • My left hand drive CV dropped out too. it wrecked the splines at the end of the CV shaft and chewed up the matching splines of the spider gear inside the transmission (manual). So ...the transmission was removed, spider gears, bearings seals and one…
  • 1. My 2003 Aerio pings and pings and pings .... even super gas will not stop it in the summer months. After opening the engine 3 times, Suzuki can't fix the problem. (I hear this is a very common problem with higher millage Aerio owners) 2. The inne…
  • Let me share with you my experiences with a 2003 Aerio SX 5 speed. It just passed 240,000 Kms (150,000 miles) today. I remember the Saturday morning in November 2002 I picked up my new silver 2003 Aerio SX hatch back from the Suzuki dealer. Right o…
  • Owners of Aerios in both the USA and Canada report some very common design defects in their cars. 1. 2003 2 Litre motors ping. The ping loudly. They ping all the time. If yours pings, get ear plugs. Suzuki does not have a fix for this problem. The S…
  • "but I managed to wear my tires out within about 2 years/30,000 miles of use." Well, what do you expect when they build a car with almost no adjustable suspension parts. Do you have serious negative camber issues in your rear wheels? Look at the tir…
  • This is a classic Suzuki nightmare. It's a problem that seems only to happen to the standard transmissions. Suzuki gave me a new trans mission and a new axel after it happened the second time in one year. If they don't offer to replace the parts for…
  • I purchased my Aerio rear camber adjusting bolts at :www.drivewire.com. They are available from other sources also. (maybe cheaper) If these don't provide enough offset. You may need to grind the bolt holes to permit further offset. By the way. Chec…
  • A few bad apples???? Oh please give me a break!! When Suzuki issues a Tech Service Bulletin on a major issue it's fair to say that more than a few units are effected. Goto Suzuki's own website. Look at ALL the TSB's!! I have experienced almost AL…
  • DO NOT go with the Suzuki. I own a 2003 I have 200,000 Kms. of highway millage on it and it's been terrible. There is a MAJOR engine design defect in the 2.0 litre. (pinging). The drivers side driveshaft falls out of the transmission (there's a TSB…
  • I really wish I could dump it ...but I'm in year 3 of a 4 year lease. This Aerio is my work car. If you look at all the Tech service bulletins in the USA and Canada its seems a lot of people have a "bad one". One thing is for sure. As the millage go…
