problem #2

Mar 262015

Forenza LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,850 miles


Put gas in my car last week, next day the engine light came on. I read the book and did everything that the book said to do. Next day went to work, the light was off (Thank you GOD) left work and the light came back on and barely made it home. Got it started Monday took it to the dealer and they said it was the Map Sensor, What in the hell is that?

Anyway, after a 2 hour wait the bill came in and it was $431.20. I have less then 41,000 miles on the car, Really!!! I don't trust the dealers AT ALL. I am an older women and I think they take advantage, but I need a car and I can't afford another one. So here we are. And the car is still running strange, I plan on taking it back Monday, the only day I have off. Better NOT cost another penny. Then while I was in there he wanted to make an appointment to get the spark plugs changed, I told him to look on his computer and check that they had ALREADY been changed, OOPS, before you try to sell me something and rip me off AGAIN, check your records for GOD's sake. There will be another complaint!!!!!

problem #1

Sep 072011

Forenza LX 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 175,000 miles

This problem has happened three times so far. I've spent almost $500 total after two stays in the shop. This doesn't include me checking or replacing the little stuff: smog hoses, air filter, gas cap, fittings, etc. There isn't even a dealer within 100 miles of me, suzuki is doing so bad financially! Shops in the small town where I live aren't familiar with this engine brand (Daewoo?), plus repair manuals are not even made for this car. It's doing it again now for over six weeks but I don't have the money to fix it again. I can't even sell it because it won't pass smog as long as the "Check" light is on. I'll never buy this brand car again. Motorcycles yes, cars no!
