Transmission shift sensor is what everything points to. When operating the vehicle in drive, the transmission suddenly ceases to operate correctly, and seems as if it has shifted into neutral. The shift selection indicator on the display panel shows a fault and the check engine light comes on. Upon investigating the issue online it seems as though this has become a recent issue with the Suzuki Forenza in the past months, ranging between the 2007 and 2008 models. This failure poses many safety concerns.

I have been reading all the comments on this car and I've had every one of them...I have a 2007 Suzuki forzena and my car problems started at about 25,000 miles. I have taken it in sooo many times with no resolve. The check engine light and tire pressure light still comes on every other day. I've had issues when I'm driving on the highway at 60 mph and the car would just decelerate down to 35 mph within a matter of seconds and no matter how much I pushed the pedal to accelerate to the floor it would not budge...this is very dangerous and I don't know why this company is still allowed to make cars. The "loaner" car that they say they give you in the warranty is a joke. We've had to rent our own cars and "wait" to be reimbursed. The dealerships they send you to cant find anything wrong with it. No matter what the problem with the car you still have to make your payments....this car has too many problems!!!!

First was the seats belt this was fix, after that was the trans range switch I have to pay because they refuse to pay for that and now is the air bag light is on and I call the manufacturer and they send me to the shop but the shop refuse to check the car because the warranty is expire but this car is from 2007.

A person driving behind our car (Suzuki-Forenza) pulled up next to us and stated we didn't have any back tail lights we also noticed on our dashboard the airbag light came on and wouldn't go off. We stopped and checked the fuses, bulbs and found both in good working order but we still had no tail lights. Attempted to head to an auto parts store to seek help(Sunday) and realized that the gear shift would not come out of park. Read the manual and had to utilize the release mech. Everytime we stopped the car and placed it in park. Also, some type of engine noise maybe fan belt continues and has to go back to the shop.

On 12/3/08 @ 12:30 a.M., my 2007 Suzuki Forenza caught fire resulting in a total loss. I've contacted Suzuki & I'm awaiting there return call. The fire marshall ruled out arson & concluded that the origin of the fire was underneath the hood resulting from electrical wiring in the vehicle. I purchased the vehicle in may of 2008 & I've never had a problem since the purchase. On 12/2/08, I drove the vehicle once in the morning & then again in the evening. Both trips were short distances. On the evening/early morning of 12/3/08 I woke up to my car engulfed in flames.

The contact owns a 2007 Suzuki Forenza. The vehicle has lock out security, which caused the doors to lock automatically when the engine was off with the key in the ignition. The contact stated that her baby was locked inside the vehicle and the police had to be called to unlock the doors. The failure mileage was 8,500 and the current mileage was 9,000.
