My wife was traveling from home when her 2005 Suzuki Verona just started stalling and it cut off. It cut off without notice or warning. She attempted to restart car and when doing so the car did not start. Then she tried again it started and drove it back home with the airbag light on and service engine light illuminated. I then had the spark plugs replaced and fixed the corroded battery terminal. I drove the car on 10/29/2014 at 2:00am in the morning headed to work and it was just hard to accelerate then it would surge, the rpms would get really high and the car would act as though it wants to cut off! there is a recall on the lights of these vehicles but they haven't had them sent or requested to be fixed. I have read where there is no fixing to these cars and that us owners of these cars are all having the same issue and some have had fatalities. To GM and other manufacturers of these cars, you know these cars need to be recalled and given the full value of the car when purchased or half of it and as the family of fatalities, there needs to be the full value of purchase and funeral burial expenses. My heart goes out to those families who lost love ones and to those who are scared to drive this car and can't really afford another, I would advise against driving it if you can if you must be careful because it can cutoff without warning or notice and cause injury. I don't let my wife drive it anymore because if it had been her injured I would be seeking a lawsuit against Suzuki, GM, or whom responsible.

Problem with the anti-lock brakes. Brakes would shudder, make a loud noise and vibrated. Had to pump them to come to a complete stop. Coleman dealership (lawrenceville, NJ 08648) claimed it was due to warped rotors. Replaced rotors brake pads and flushed brake system. Problem recurred immediately after leaving the dealership. Returned car to dealership on 6/08/2010. Dealership stated the problem was due to a broken sensor. Dealership replaced sensor under warranty, but problem with sensor recurred after 10 months and the anti-lock brakes do not work. Was told the brake failure was due to a broken sensor again. Car is unsafe to drive. Also, air bag light stays on continuously (told this would not affect air bag performance) but that it is an electrical problem.

While driving home the ABS light come on. I returned to dealer and was told that they needed to order a part for the hub on the car. It had to be ordered.

  • Automatic transmission

From a full stop I stepped on the accelerator to get up to 40 miles an hour then loose power, speed drops down to 20 to 25 miles and hour and then the engine light starts flashing. Power returns and engine light stops flashing and stays on. This has happen dozens of times and I have take it in to the dealer to be repaired today will be the 4th time for the same thing. I have stopped driving it on the hwy because I was almost hit by a truck when entering hwy and lost power. Since researching this vehicle I have found two others with the same make model and year with the same problems.

I just purchased a 2005 Suzuki Verona 5 months ago, and it was the biggest mistake of my life. I'll be on the road and all of a sudden the car will hold back (stall) and drop to less than 20 miles per hour. I've also taken the car to the dealer over 6 times because my check engine light will not come off, and they have yet to fix that. They've put in new sensors twice, flushed the computer various times, and the problem still persists. If this doesn't get fixed my car won't even pass inspection to get my plates and it doesn't even have 20,000 miles on it yet.

April 28, 2006 american Suzuki motor corporation automotive division P.O. Box 1100 brea, ca 92822-1100 to whom it may concern: I believe that my passenger vehicle is a lemon under the New Jersey lemon law (N.J.S.a. 56:12-29 to 56:12-49). I am hereby making a written demand for relief under the New Jersey lemon law. I purchased a Suzuki, Verona 2005, on March 4, 2006 from matt blatt imports located at 2445 South delsea drive, vineland, NJ 08360. Since I bought the vehicle, I have had to return the vehicle to a Suzuki authorized dealership for repairs a total of 2 times. My vehicle has been out of service for repairs for a total of 29 calendar days and counting. The current mileage on my vehicle is 10876. My vehicle has been in for repair on the following date for the following repair of the following defects: March 15, 2006 and out the same day. This time was due to the engine service light coming on and staying on Suzuki was unable to repair the problem. My vehicle is currently with Suzuki since the following date for the following repair of the following defects: April 1, 2006 and remains there at this time. Moving my driver seat forward caused the wires to get caught in the seat motor, which resulted in melting the power system or fuse box under the hood of the vehicle. Since these problems substantially have impaired the use, value, safety and confidence of my vehicle as well as in Suzuki, and Suzuki products and its ability repair. I am hereby allowing you one final opportunity to repair my vehicle.
