2006 Suzuki Verona Owner Comments

problem #3

Oct 122007


  • 15,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Suzuki Verona. While driving at speeds of 5 mph in snowy weather, the transmission began slipping while traveling uphill. The dealer stated that the accelerator pedal attempted to synchronize with the computer. The contact stated that the transmission had previously been repaired under the factory warranty due to the identical failure. The manufacturer was contacted and was hesitant to offer any assistance with a second repair to the transmission per the factory warranty. He was advised by the manufacturer to have repairs performed on the vehicle in accordance with his automobile insurance policy. The VIN was not available when the complaint was filed. The approximate failure mileage was 15,000 and the current mileage was 63,000.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the main computer module, transmission module, and the throttle body all needed to be replaced. The failures still persist.

Verona 6-cyl

  • 3,200 miles
So far, windshield wiper arm came loose and flopped around while driving in severe storm. Transmission makes a loud clunk when re accelerating at 5 and 20 mph. Windshield wiper arm was tightened, no prob. Since. Transmission still clunks and have had in to dealer 4 times already. They have replaced a control arm and a ball joint. Then had to take back to have steering wheel realigned due to their neglect. After that steering wheel made a clicking noise for about a week. Dealership claims they are unable to find the source of the clunk or to even re create it. It happens for me daily. Next car completely shut off and steering wheel locked up at night while I was driving through a parking garage. Unable to steer car. Today, brakes acted like they weren't going to stop the car, sounded and felt like a spring that is being depressed and not able to compensate for the load. My main complaint, concern is that car will shut off in traffic and I will not be able to steer and will cause an accident. Also, that the clunking in transmission and is a design defect.
