A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

THIS VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED NEW IN FEBRUARY OF 2008. IT RANDOMLY HAD FLICKERING OF THE RADIO (GOING ON AND OFF), THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES OVER A YEAR. EVENTUALLY THE BLINKERS WERE BLINKING CRAZY, THE BATTERY WOULD NOT CHARGE, THE LIGHTER FUSES WOULD GO OUT, ENGINE LIGHT ON, CAR WOULD NOT START, ETC...

IT HAS THE BUMPER TO BUMPER WARRANTY WHICH IS NOW ONLY THE EXTENDED PART BECAUSE IT'S OVER 30K MILES...SO THEY DON'T WANT TO GIVE ME A RENTAL OR LOANER...WHY??? BECAUSE THEY CANNOT DUPLICATE THE DAMN PROBLEM IN ORDER TO HAVE THE REPAIR COVERED BY THE WARRANTY COMPANY!!!!

EVERY TIME I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER BEGINNING IN APRIL 2009 THE PROBLEM COULD NOT BE DIAGNOSED BECAUSE THE DAMN THING WOULD NOT ACT CRAZY WHEN THEY HAD IT!?!?!?! OF COURSE, THEY THOUGHT I WAS INSANE.......IT HAS BEEN TO THE DEALER 12 TIMES NOW.........

RECENTLY...

I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER IN MARCH 2012 BECAUSE THE THING WAS MAKING NOISES, AC KEPT BLOWING WHEN OFF AND OTHER RANDOM ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS THAT ....COULD NOT BE DUPLICATED.....THEY REPAIRED SOMETHING ON THE CAR - NOT MY ELECTRICAL PROBLEM...BECAUSE ...YES...THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE IT!!!

I STARTED RECORDING THE PROBLEMS AFTER I GOT IT BACK BECAUSE I WAS SICK OF THE THING NOT BEING FIXED AND BEING LOOKED AT LIKE I AM THE CRAZY ONE...THEY ARE NOW ON YOUTUBE...AND MY CAR IS STILL NOT FIXED BECAUSE...THEY CANNOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT HAS RECENTLY GOTTEN TO THE POINT THAT THE STABILITY CONTROL FLASHES ON AND OFF AND THE STEREO WILL GO OFF, THE BLINKERS BLINK THROUGH THE SPEAKERS AND THE POWER SHUT DOWN WITH THE KEY STUCK IN THE CAR....

I HAD IT TOWED TO THE DEALER ON 5/21/12 BECAUSE THE DAMN THING WOULD NOT START...POWER WAS FLASHING ON AND OFF AND THE KEY WAS STUCK IN IT... OF COURSE, WHEN IT GOT TO THE DEALER IT STARTED RIGHT UP...IT PROBABLY EVEN DROVE ITSELF OFF THE DAMN WRECKER AND LAUGHED AT ME!!!!!! WELL, THE DEALERSHIP SAID THEY FIXED IT (SOME WIRES GOING TO THE FUSE BOX WERE LOOSE....I DID NOT BELIEVE THEM DUE TO THE FACT THAT IN THE PAST THEY BLAMED EVERYTHING, INCLUDING MY TRAILER HITCH WIRING (WHICH THEY DISCONNECTED AND DID NOT PAY ME FOR) AND DID NOTHING TO FIX IT....AND I HAVE WASTED ENTIRELY TOO MUCH TIME TAKING THIS STUPID CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP ONLY TO BE TOLD THEY CANNOT FREAKING REPEAT THE DAMN PROBLEM...SO I REFUSED TO PAY THEM THE $99 FEE TO DIAGNOSE THE THING....GOOD THING BECAUSE IT WAS NOT FIXED!!!

TODAY, 5/24/12THE POWER SHUT DOWN WITH MY HUSBAND IN THE CAR...WELL, IT IS ALL ELECTRICAL SO HE COULD NOT GET OUT!!! HE WAS STUCK FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES IN THE HEAT, SWEATING, AND COULD HAVE PASSED OUT...I HAD TO DRIVE TO LOWES TO LET HIM OUT WITH THE 2ND KEY!!!!! I CALLED THE DEALER...GUESS WHAT??? THEY SAID THEY WILL TRY TO DIAGNOSE IT...BUT IF IT DOES NOT DUPLICATE ITSELF THEN THEY CANNOT GET ANYTHING FROM THE WARRANTY COMPANY...AND OF COURSE THEY REFUSE TO GIVE ME A RENTAL OR A COURTESY CAR FROM THE DEALER...

I AM SO PISSED OFF THAT I THINK I AM GOING TO FILE SUIT ON THE DEALERSHIP, THE SERVICE PEOPLE INDIVIDUALLY AND THE CORPORATION!!!!!

I HAVE SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND I SEE THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM AND SUZUKI WILL NOT RECALL ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF????????

I AM ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO CONTACT SUZUKI IF YOU HAVE HAD AN ISSUE LIKE THIS...
