I have only had this car for 6 months, and I have had to replace these stupid lights 4 times! That is ridiculous! Also due to them going out all the time out of no where I've been pulled over and fined for it! It's ridiculous and extremely annoying! I have never had this problem with any other vehicle before!

Since I bought my 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara brand new, I've replaced the DRL- Daily Running Lights at least 6 times, 4 on the drivers side and 2 times on the passengers side!

The worst thing happened to me on my way to watch my grand daughter dance this past Friday on June 12, 2015. The weather was getting very bad. It was raining so hard I could barely see and I was following my daughter to the event. She calls me on my cell phone and tells me "Mom, please put your lights on". I then told her they are on. She then tells me nothing is on !

My low beam headlights and my Daily running lights were all blown out! I was so upset , because I knew that in order to get home that night safely I would have to use my High beam lights all the way back home which was an hour away! This is a very dangerous situation and I just can't understand how Suzuki can not see this as a horrible and deadly malfunction on their part!

I love my vehicle, but I never realized that so many other people are having the same problems over and over and they refuse to address this problem until someone gets killed for these lights burning out prematurely after every 4 to 5 months or even before. This has cost me so much money since I've bought this vehicle, but honestly that's the least of my worries now, I'm so scared to death now knowing that these lights can blow out at any time and with no help from the manufactures of Suzuki.

I believe this is a sin and a horrible shame! Please everyone keep writing and by the grace of God, they may see that a huge recall needs to be addressed on these vehicles!
