2004 Suzuki Forenza Owner Comments

I bought a brand new 2004 Suzuki Forenza from a Suzuki dealer in tucson Arizona on 05/21/04. From the first day we did not feel that A/C was working correctly and was cooling after a approx 30 min drive. I bought a temp gauge to check the vent temp and the reading will not go lower then 50F. All driver's should know that a nice cold A/C should reach 40F at its best performance. We took the car to the dealer and was told that the freon was low and have corrected the problem. The A/C worked good for a couple of days and started performing the same as before. Second time, I took the dealer technician with his digital temp reader on a drive. The outside temp was 106F and the vent temp was 48F. Please note when I went to the dealership the car was running for more then 30 mins. Dealership referred to the Suzuki tech line and told me that there is nothing wrong with the A/C. there explanation was that if the outside temperature is 99F then the vent temp should be higher then 50F and as it was 106F outside, your A/C is working fine. The dealer will not repair or replace a shoddy, cheap air conditioning system. Please check all items on the car prior to buying a Suzuki automobile.
