2005 Suzuki Forenza Owner Comments

Forenza 4-cyl

My complaint about my Suzuki, Forenza is that I have taken it to the dealership at least twice for a sensor problem. My sensor for my day time lights constantly goes out and comes on whenever it wants. The second time I took it to the dealership they said they put on a new one but even now it constantly goes out then back on again; I cannot take it back to have it looked at because they say my warranty is over; also my low beam headlights no longer work because of a wiring problem the exists. Someone looked at the problem and said it was a wire that lays against a part of the engine that goes to the low beam lights and it burned out. One day I notice smoke coming from the engine and I thought it needed oil. The next day I had no low beam lights to use. I can only use my high beam now because the dealer said my warranty ran out. This car is only 2 years old and I bought it with only 5 miles on it. Those wiring should not be defective as of yet. I found out from a co-worker who has a Forenza is having the same problem; he cannot use his low beam lights anymore and his warranty is over; he has to use his high beam also. Phone interview update (8-may-07): The complainant indicated that sometimes even the high beams do not work now.
