2010 Suzuki Kizashi GTS: Ruh-Roh
February 16, 2011
Our 2010 Suzuki Kizashi returned from its 15K service last month, and we weren't pleased with the experience. Here's another reason. The scheduled maintenance included the usual oil change, tire rotation, and apparently reducing unsprung mass from the right front wheel. Notice anything missing?
This is unacceptable, to say the least. It's also a dramatic illustration for the reason we have a rigorous check list we follow prior to testing each and every vehicle that goes to the track. Of course, we check (and if necessary, snug to 90 lb-ft) all twenty, or in this case nineteen lug nuts.
