2006 Suzuki Forenza Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car if you're going to keep because of low resale. I have
185,000 miles on mine and it runs great. It's a 2006 and has just a little bit of rust by gas cap. I hit a large deer and only damaged the hood and grill.

Review

If you're paying a lot for this car, I really wouldn't recommend purchasing it. I've already replaced the TRS 3 times and it's really annoying to deal with. The plus is that you can still drive with the wonky TRS but it's uncool when you're going up a hill and it kicks into a different gear. So you go really slooow. Another thing is that the door handles suck and are really weak. I've had my two indoor backseat handles break off and those ironically cost more to fix than the actual TRS.

Other than this bs this car has been really trusty with no other issues. Which is good, because it already has a constant and unavoidable TRS problem. If you can put up with paying 300$ every year for a new TRS than this car is fine for you. Otherwise wouldn't recommend it. Not even for a new driver because what kind of teen has that kind of money to dish out?

Review

This car didn't look bad, run bad, but was nothing but problems! The mileage was also not that great. My girlfriend bought this car used before we were dating and it was a total bust. It didn't last her 3 years and died from a bad head gasket or similar at 86,000 miles. I told her it was time to move on once the coolant and exhaust started mixing.

Here is what went wrong.
-Transmission Range Sensor
-Valve Cover Gasket
-EVAP Purge valve and cylinder
-Struts
-Other sensors I forgot about but this car was the champion of check engine lights.
-HEAD GASKET (This was the nail in the coffin)

Review

A Mechanic showed that there had been many warranty claims concerning the transmission. Suggested that I change the transmission in 2015. The car was a 2006 and only had 6200 miles thus I thought he was wrong. Found he was right for at 7200 miles it started not shifting in the lower gears. I had to manually move the automatic shifter into 3rd.


Best Features

I loved the automatic windows and doors. Turned easily in sharp turns.
