Had the radio blaring, enjoying my tunes when suddenly the car stopped dead in its tracks on the highway while it was raining profusely & I was dressed in my tux, going to a special dinner. Had to get it towed a long way since there was only one Suzuki dealership in the state.

Dealer said the bearing on the fan failed, sending the fan into the radiator, which eventually caused 3 out of 4 cylinders blown from overheating. No warning lights ever came on.

Suzuki wouldn't cover it unless I had all repair records, which I didn't have because it was a used car, so I ended up selling it at a huge loss & got a new car. Never buying Suzuki again & will never stray from the blue book. Wife now thinks I can't pick cars out, will never live this down, ever.
