On 04/21/15 another incident was when I was driving to the hospital and all of a sudden my car dropped to less than 20 mph and wouldn't accelerate.I had to pull over without power steering to get my son to the hospital. On 5/04/2015 I was driving my car to drop my son off at daycare and when I started my car it revved up the engine on its own from 2-3 RPM's and then idled and I put the car in drive and drove about 2 miles and then while I was at a stop light I was stopped and my car jerked forward slightly 2 times and you could hear the change in the car then all of a sudden it died. I waited about 4 minutes and started it up again and it got me to my sons daycare and then I shut it off took him in and went to start my car and it wouldn't start. After waiting for 3 minutes I tried again and the same thing happened on my way to work. My car died while I was at the stop light. This time I was on a hill and my car started rolling backwards but my brakes were on so I didn't hit the car behind me.the latest incident occurred while I was on the freeway and I was going 65 mph and it lost power and I slowed to 20 mph then my car died this time it took almost 15 minutes for me to start my car. I took it to the shop 4 times and they replaced my throttle body, throttle actuator control, and my throttle position sensor. It still didn't stop my car from dying. My mechanic told me it keeps losing the signal and the Suzuki dealer is shutting it off. I am very scared to drive my vehicle in case I get into an accident due to it continuously dying on me.

The transmission in my 2006 Suzuki Reno has always felt funky. Last year when I started my car and put the transmission in reverse, it made a loud noise, the gear selector display on the dashboard went all crazy showing all letters (D, N, R), and then the engine light came on. When I drove, the car wasn't working right. It felt like the transmission was all over the place and the car would not accelerate properly. The diagnostic computer showed two codes PO700 and PO705. I had to change the transmission range sensor at my own cost. I have read online forums, and a lot of people who own Reno 2006, 2007 or 2008 have had the same problem. Also people who own Suzuki forenzas 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 models have had this problem.if you google "Suzuki transmission problems", there is a lot of people complaining about the same thing..
