Forenza 4-cyl

  • 53,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Suzuki Forenza. The contact stated that the vehicle began to lose radiator fluid sporadically. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic, who was unable to locate a leak of any sort. No repairs were made to the vehicle and the vehicle continued to lose fluid. Several weeks later while accelerating from a traffic stop at 45 mph, smoke was seen coming from under the hood. In addition, the engine temperature began to increase rapidly. The contact assumed that the failure was caused by a faulty radiator. The vehicle was parked and upon further inspection, the contact discovered that radiator coolant had exploded all over the engine compartment and under the hood area. The vehicle was inspected by a second mechanic, who advised that the engine cooling fans were failing sporadically. In addition, the head gasket was failing. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact also stated that the transmission range sensor would recurring fail. The transmission range sensor had been replaced four times over the course of 5 years. The manufacturer was contacted but offered no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 53,000.

Forenza 4-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
I bought a 2007 Suzuki Forenza 4 door sedan new in 2007 but now the drive lights would not turn off did this once before about three months ago but turned off after about 47 minutes after I took the battery cable a lose. It started again on May 24, 2011 when my wife took our kids to basketball practice she smelt something burning, the car burst into flames with a lot of smoke down by her leg, another motorist saw her and put the fire out with a fire extinguisher. The car does not run it will turn over but not crank no power in car, no lights nothing works. Car is full of extinguisher smoke from trying to put fire out. The harness with wires going inside of it inside of car is melted, had to have car towed home 31.9 miles. Called Suzuki about car they asked me is there a recall on the car, go figure please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also when car was working the tire pressure gauge stayed on even with new tires that I could not keep on car is wearing tires down and last but not least air conditioner was only blowing hot air even though it is full of freon.
