Does that model have the "smart" electronically controlled automatic transmission that is supposed to get used to the way you drive and help it be more efficient? Because I know there were issues in the 2005 model with the module that controlled the transmission going bad and causing the car to run poorly. I don't have the specifics of the issue, and haven't seen a recall notice, but my husband found ... Read More
I have a Suzuki Forenza 2005. In the past year, a few minor things have been wrong with it. I had to replace a gauge and a vaccuum hose, both of which had cracked or crumbled due to age. This week, as I was pulling into my parking lot, the car suddenly dumped all its anti-freeze and started smoking. One of the "T" shaped connectors had cracked and come out, and ... Read More

The plant went bankrupt and to get any good service for this junk you have beg for it and pay, there are several problems the dealer knows about factory knew about and to this day and of course out of warranty they ...

First off, turn off your cap lock. No need to shout at us. Secondly, find out what sensor. An oxygen sensor? Or does it have to do with the fuel injection (a somewhat common problem). You can have Autozone or another independent place run a computer check and find out what the error code(s) is (are). If you don't trust the shop, find another. The car guys on NPR have a ...

YES, PLEASE CONTACT ME ALSO, I HAVE '07 SUZUKI FORENZA AND I AM TOLD THAT THE SENSOR IS OUT?? MAYBE, BUT THEY WILL NOT KNOW FOR SURE UNTIL THEY START TO FIX IT, I THINK THEY DO NOT WANT TO LET ME KNOW THAT IF I DO NOT PAY FOR THE TUNE-UP OF $700 THEY WILL GET IT OUT OF ME ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
I have a 2005 Suzuki Forenza (48k miles) which has had most of the problems listed (i.e struts, check engine light nightmare, gas, tires, etc). My most recent nightmare happened just a little bit ago when I was driving home and the car DIED while turning the corner. The lights on the dash remained on, but the steering and gas did not work. I was able to pull over and put ... Read More
OMG all that is happening to me right now. My 2007 Forenza. Drivers inside door handle snapped right off one day. Thankfully still under warranty at that time. Now transmission slipping. Hoping it just needs flushed. Whatever happened with yours?
I have a 2006 forenza it has been to the shop more times than I can count. At 30,000 mile the struts have to be replaced. we have had electrical problems since day one. The car has left my wife on the road at least four times. the blower motor also had to be replaced . we have been waiting for the part for at least three weeks now. The service ... Read More
Hey maddude, sorry to hear about the trouble you went through. I had so many problems with my Forenza also, but they did not go though any trouble for me, as far as giving me a rental or anything. I bought my 2005 suzuki forenza brand new from quality cars in san antonio, and had taken my car to chacon also. Chacon Suzuki is the worst dealership ever man! I have ... Read More

Hello, I recently had my check engine light come on. After trying to get through car inspection i was told this is an Emissions failure and my car failed. The code was P0420. I went to Suzuki to have it checked and because i purchased an extended100,000 warranty with the car. Thinking this would be resolved, boy was i wrong. Suzuki told me this problem is not covered under extended warranty, ... Read More

I HAVE A 2006 FORENZA, PLEASE BY ALL MEANS IF THERE ENDS UP BEING A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT, CONTACT ME. I HAVE HAD TO HAVE A TRANSMISSION SENSOR REPLACED AT MY COST, WHICH ATLEAST A 150 OTHER PEOPLE HAVE TO, SO IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON RECALL
my 2005 forenza had less that 36000mi/ and one day the engine light came on and overheated and that is the end of the story.
>Ever since I blew the head gasket on my 2005 Suzuki Forenza I have not driven the car, that was in September 2008. I had the head repaired and the car have been in the shop since April 6, 2009. I had it at the dealer and all they did was change two sensors, never diagnose the problem correctly, I called Suzuki about the engline light they informed me that the ... Read More
I purchased a 2004 Forenza for my daughter back in February. Thank God there have been no major problems. However, last week my daughter was complaining that her headlights were not working. During the day, the DRLS would come on as normal, but at night, the headlights did not come on. I did some searching and found that Suzuki had a recall for the headlights for the 2004 and 2005 model ... Read More
I have a 2005 manual transmission Forenza and I'm getting close to 30 mpg. My driving is about 55-65% on the freeway/highway. When I calculate my mpg when I fill-up the tank, I almost always get 29.xxx or 30.xxx mpg. Don
Mine nearly drives itself; however, the steering wheel does make noises like the fluid is low but it is not.
I bought this car new off the lot with 15 miles on it 10/29/2006. After 300 miles, the air bag indicator on the passenger side stopped working. Got it fixed but now at 18,000 miles indicator light back on. This car will not start when temp is below 20 degrees. However, when 20-25 it stalls out no matter where you are. This car has been towed 4 times and in the ... Read More
I bought a 2005 Forenza about 3 weeks ago and I am VERY pleased...never in my life have I traded in a car...bought a new car and actually LOWERED my payment. I traded at 2000 Honda Civic in and got a brand new Forenza...it is really nice (not to mention cheaper) and I am absolultely thrilled with it...my teenage daughter is dying to have one herself...and I have liked it so ...

Just sold my 1995 Sidekick 4-door. Great vehicle for all 125k miles. Sold on Suzuki reliability. The trucklet was getting old, though, and I was concerned for my wife to be driving it since due to it's age, I started to worry about safety. No airbags, no ABS, etc. Sort of tinny, and in this day and age where ABS and airbags are kind of no-brainers, I thought, hey, time to ... Read More
Again, my point is that Suzuki should have offered the dual chamber airbag to begin with. I'm not saying they need to retrofit the bag from the Forenza; rather, they should have designed a better airbag for the Aerio, especially once they knew the Forenza would have one. Offering a chest only airbag in 2005 is almost pointless unless they offered a head curtain to go along with it. Since they ... Read More
I read in the August 16 issue of Automotive News that the refreshed 2005 Aerio will be out very soon with a few minor interior and exterior changes. It also states that a whole new Aerio will be a 2008 redesign. They must plan on keeping it in the line up and that is good. They also mentioned a new compact car about the size of an Aerio for 2007. That ... Read More
I just wanted to let you know that a reliable source has told me that the 2005 Forenza sedan is getting standard side-impact airbags to coincide with the Reno and Forenza wagon - which have been confirmed on the Suzuki Auto website to receive them. :-)
I went to see the NY Auto Show the other day. There was an Aerio SX displayed there, but I don't remember seeing an Aerio sedan. The SX was displayed practically out of sight, behind a huge column, and all the way on the edge of Suzuki's display area. There was practically no visitor traffic around it. Suzuki's new cars, on the other hand, were displayed right in the middle of ... Read More
Well from what my dealer told me after their big regional dealer meeting is that the Aerio won't be discontinued. I didn't ask him that directly but he told me the supposed future lineup. It goes as: -The Vitara V6 stopped production about 2 months ago and will be DEFINITELY dropped for 2005. -The XL-7 is supposed to be the next GV either in name or placement in the lineup. It ...

We have a good Suzuki dealer here in Tucson and they handle only Suzuki. However they rarely stock more than one Aerio at a time now and load their lot with Forenza, XL-7 and Verona. Thats what all the ads are on too and they claim there is no interest in the Aerio. We still love ours but they have all but forgotten it. I bet 2005 is the last year ... Read More
