SX4 4-cyl

  • 21,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Suzuki SX4. The contact was driving at approximately 40 mph, as he came to a stop sign and depressed the brake pedal, the brakes did not operate. The contact stated the engine started revving up fast. He put the vehicle in neutral and the engine started revving faster. He turned the engine off and then back on and the vehicle operated normally. He took the vehicle to the dealer and after five weeks the dealer called him on March 19th, and told him to pick up the vehicle because there was nothing wrong with it. The contact is concerned about the safety risk. The failure and current mileages were 21,000. Updated 07/19/10 updated 07/21/10.

1. driving with cruise control engaged in hilly terrain. 2. when driving with cruise control engaged, in hilly terrain, if the hill is steep enough that the transmission downshifts twice, upon reaching the crest of the hill or otherwise leveling out, the cruise control does not return the car to the set speed, but will continue to accelerate the car to four mile per hour or more over set speed. As I have not yet let the vehicle go completely through it maximum over-acceleration, four mile over is all I can report. Have not had that many opportunities to experience this, since don't drive under these conditions very often. It is consistent in its occurrence. The over-acceleration can be very disconcerting, and, since it occurs in hilly terrain, can, if it is not a known issue to the driver, could put them in danger of losing control of the vehicle. The over-acceleration also occurs when there is a single down-shift of the transmission, but is not as severe, being only in the range of two miles per hour. Still, I don't think there should be any over-acceleration of any magnitude. 3. talked to the service manager at the dealer where I purchased the car, and he indicated that this is a known issue and that there were no plans for any repairs. Upsetting, but, since I know this will happen, I can handle it. Given the Toyota issue, though, I feel obliged to report that this occurs, it is a known issue to the manufacturer, and that there are no plans for a fix.
