I bought my 2005 Suzuki Verona new out of the showroom. My gas tank is having the same problem but it only started about a year ago. It takes a long time to fill the tank. Did you find the solution? There should have been a recall to this. Other than this the car has been great. A sensor or two had to be replaced and the rear boot keeps going ... Read More
Was a true solution ever found for your Suzuki Verona intermittent Hard Brake Pedal? Thanks!
Poulsbokid!! Dang, you still have that car?!!! I'm ALSO just checking back to satisfy my curiosity (plus I'm severely bored at work) in regards to Suzuki Motors company reacting on Verona issues........sadly I see they lost interest. For those that never ventured far back enough to read posts from August 2006 to September 2007, I was one of the rare members who successfully had Suzuki Motors Corporation buy back their Verona. ...

Mike, Hi. I haven't been on the site for a while but I was wondering if you were able to get your car fixed. We have an 04 and like you had almost no problems. Now it sits in the drive way and we can not use it. Please feel free to contact me at my personal email address. Mickeysgal@comcast.net Thanks Jen
Our 2005 Suzuki Verona has 114k miles on it, and has been virtually problem free, we have done the basic maintenance on it but recently the check engine light came on at apprx 105,000 and we took it to a local mechanic who said that the Catalytic converter needs to be replaced, we didn't have the money at the time so we decided to hold off, then a couple of days ...

pasuk, first thing you should do is get your hands on every repair bill involved with the car. The service department should have gave you a copy each trip--whether or not they fixed anything. If you didn't retain go back and ask for a copy of each, at the minimum a printout of the repair history. Don't take excuses if they resist, the most important thing is that you show proof ...

I have a 2005 Verona that has visited the dealership at least 8-10 times over the course of 2 years. I too have experienced many of the problems that others have shared through this forum: irratic idoling, loss/surge power, gas pedal vibrating underfoot, stalling, etc. I have had the car in at least one other time for the above problems. Recently the problem has become much worse. I am headed once ... Read More
blkbob, I did some research and you are absolutely right, but before I bought the verona I did know it was made by GM/DAEWOO and was a little leary about it but my wife and I fell in love the silky smooth I6. I have not enjoyed an I6 engine since my 1985 toyota supra, so we bought it. In a way I dont blame suzuki for wanting to distance themselves ... Read More
poulsbokid, at 6000 miles I'd check the Lemon Laws if they're available in your state; that would be my first suggestion. If you qualify, try to return that "appliance" back to Suzuki. Second, if consumer laws aren't your answer, get a Suzuki rep out to your dealership. It sounds like a typical case of the service department not caring how many times you come back(not to say the rep will be ... Read More
My wife and I bought our 2005 Verona new in march of 05 and now have 18000 miles on it, overall we very happy with it. I started getting concerned when I noticed Suzuki was not going to have a 2007 model so did a google search and found this site. I see why they axed it, I have noticed a few sputtering issues on 4 different occasions I thought it ... Read More
I now have 13K plus miles on my 2004 LX Verona and the only problem I'm having is coping with all the negative reports on this site. It's scary! So far, the car is functioning perfectly. I took it to the dealer (Denver) last week for an oil change and any possible TSB updates. Though I bought it new in Dec. 2005, I learned that it was one of the early ... Read More
Hello all, Its been a long time since i have posted, but i wanted to let toymaker1 know that i love the verona. mine is a 2004 ex bought in dec 2003, and i have 48,100 miles on it. I do alot of traveling in my job, and i have no complaints at all. I did just have the throttle body replaced( at no cost to me), but other then that ... Read More
Hi! The Evanda sold in Europe have a 2.0 liter engine (The some engine Suzuki Forenza in USA) with manual transmission (automatic is an option). I ve a 2006 Chevrolet Evanda and for the moment i ve any problem. THE Evanda/Verona is no more made, they stop production in december 2005. GMDAT start the production of the new EVANDA that you can buy in Europe from July 2006, GMDAT decide to ... Read More
"This post is especially for Chuck who seems to have an extraordinary hatred for Suzuki." See post 1407. It's his second Verona.......and he is having problems already. He just bought this car. It can't have very many miles on it.
Suzuki's current Verona shares a chassis, powertrain and sheetmetal with the Daewoo Magnus sedan produced in Korea. We saw a rendering of the next Daewoo Magnus, due as a 2006 model, which could well mean that the Verona will be re made on this platform in '07. The current car was designed in Italy, and one look at the prototype suggested to us that the next Verona will wear even more ... Read More
Hi everyone, have not posted in a long time, but just wanted to answer evergreen. I average about 20-24 mpg, and i travel alot for work. I have a 2004 ex which i bought in dec 2003, and have had none of the issues everyone else has. Love this car,and have a total of 3 suzuki's. As for tires, i had to replace mine with about 31,000 miles on the car. ... Read More
So far there is no TSB on the lifters in the Verona engine from Suzuki. In June they did issue a new software upgrade for the transmission computer to improve the shifting. There is a TSB available for that if someone is having some odd shift behavior they would like checked out. They also issued another software update for the ECM in June 2005, apparantly the earlier updates they performed didn't ... Read More
So far the total number of people with real problems here has been less than 12 since the stalling issue. In addition the NHTSA has logged ZERO complaints on the 2005 model year Verona. The reason there are not any complaints is because there are hardly any on the road. Again, there has been 12,000 sold in the entire country. The number of complaints here is probably representative of others, since ... Read More
i hate to burst your cloud you're coasting on, but this VERONA owner knows exactly what the deal is with the ECM and in no way is it being blown out of proportion. my car is in the shop right now. dealership admits that this is a problem and they were waiting on some techs f/suzuki to get there so that everyone could get together and try to find out why ... Read More
Hi, I am back after along gap. The Verona after its initial cup of woes regarding ECM, sensors etc. ran without incident from Dec 2005 till Oct 2005. Two weeks back, the check engine light went on. I took it to the dealer and they ran the OBD-2 and found out that the 6'th cylinder had low compression. So they had a dud of an engine. The dealer took it under ... Read More
Chuck and Rasup, I agree with what both of you have said. I disagree with Chuck's blanket statements, unsupported by facts. When an automobile company sells thousands of a particular model, as all do, the number of complaints reported here on this forurm are statistically insignificant. Suzuki seems to have solved the stalling promblem with the last software release. Remove these complaints from the equation and the car looks pretty good. ... Read More
Tom, Sorry Tom, I dont get it. Can you explain?. If you see the current ad, they flash the names of all other Suzuki cars. I do understand that this ad is geared to the younger folk. From what you say another specific ad should appear for the Verona. Do you remember that the Verona was targetted against the Camry?. I know that its only a year. But to match the ... Read More
rasup, If the Verona is targeted for a different demographic, then you would needed to project a different image. Think about it, you only can have one image. As far as sales, where did you get your figures? I cannot find any recent sales figures on the internet. If 2005 sales are down, it's because they still have 2004's leftover. They overproduced the EX model. That's the only 2004 model that ... Read More
First Chuck, all life is a crap shoot. The primary complaint against this car concerns stalling. Anyone who knows anything about an automobile knows that this is a relively simple software/hardware bug in the EFI. For some reason, the EFI is trying to run the engine too lean. This means too little fuel to air ratio. I guess you had to drive and maintain one of them old cars with a ... Read More
I just purchased a new 2004 Verona. So far I am very pleased. It only has about 500 miles on it. I got a fantastic deal. It's everything that I expected. The engine runs well, very smooth, no EFI problems. The power is more than adequate and the high torque output makes it a very smooth car to drive. Low RPM's deliver plenty of power. This is something six cylinders can ... Read More
"They also put the used cars and the SUVs in the front line and the couple of Veronas in the back. On local commercials they don't even mention the Verona." Yes, this seems to be "standard operating procedures" to put used cars and SUV's in the "front line". I saw this at TWO So. Cal dealerships. Well, I guess we can surmise one thing, that they are not selling-or they would ... Read More
On www.Suzuki.com, they list the 2005 Verona and it now has tire pressure monitoring and side airbags standard for 2005. The LX now has a sunroof as standard equipment. The price has also inched up a little bit.
The 2004 Verona got off to such a bad start I'm fearful that Suzuki may pull the plug on the car after 2005. I recently saw a Suzuki TV commercial and it appeared not to mention the Verona as it flashed up the names of the different Suzuki vehicles but I COULD be mistaken. Has anyone noticed any new commercials that mentioned the Verona? Has anyone heard from anybody with a ... Read More
Hi, Whats going on in 2005?. It seems all are either too busy or sleeping?. Suzuki seems to have put the Verona in the shade...see no ad's on TV. I wonder if they are overhauling the Car?. Hey...keep the posts going.
Thank you for the correction, I apologize about that- I do indeed know its a straight six. Ok, Im an average Joe. There is nothing exceptional about the Verona's powertrain. It is a slow vehicle. Slow enough to be outgunned by 4 cylinder Civics and Corollas, mind you, let alone Camrys and Accords. I think the ability to merge and pass are very important especially today, with mammoth SUVs and more ... Read More
I just went to the dealer to drop of my XL7 for maintenance and my dealer had 1 2005 Verona EX in the back, along with some other 05 Suzukis. One thing that I did notice was that the leather felt more supple. Has anyone else had a chance to sit in an 05 Verona EX yet??? BTW, the 2005 Suzuki brochures (XL7, Forenza, Verona) are in stock and this year ... Read More
According to Motor Trend, the 2005 Verona will also receive a tool-kit and a tire-pressure monitoring system. I wonder what the prices will be? Considering that Suzuki hiked the price of the 2004 model by $700 mid-year, I wouldn't be surprised to see a notable increase for the 2005 model, especially with the extra standard equipment. On a side note, the Iridium spark plugs should improve the gas mileage a little ... Read More
Does anyone know when the 05 Veronas hit the dealer showrooms? Any major changes? Is Suzuki planning a bigger motor for this puppy? Sounds like reflashing may have gotten rid of at least one annoyance.
I recently received an e-mail from a representative at Suzuki. Enclosed was a word document of the 2005 lineup. Verona: Big on Style A European-designed midsize sedan with the following standard equipment: A 2.5-Liter, 24-valve DOHC in-line six-cylinder engine (vs. the competitionsí four-cylinder engines); fully adaptive automatic transmission with step-gate shifter; air conditioning with micron air-filtration system; power windows and door locks; keyless entry; cruise control; in-dash AM/FM CD/cassette player with ...

I hated to do it, but Suzuki kept changing their mind about trading me out of it, etc, And getting *&@#ing tired of paying on a car and not having it, being in the show well over a month, I have retained an attorney today to force Suzuki to repurchase the car. They have no fix yet, www.nhtsa.gov has over a dozen complaints on stalling, and this is NOT what I ... Read More
what is the different configuration between the two cars? I know the verona I have has no problem in this area. Maybe try to call suzuki and get a higher opinion I called and it seemed to rush things along. I know waiting for parts is a real problem it seems to go on forever. They want you not to get a 2004 ex.In my area you can't find one.Ask them ... Read More
I just wanted to let you know that a reliable source has told me that the 2005 Verona is getting standard side-impact airbags to coincide with it's fellow GMDAT products, the Reno and Forenza wagon - which have been confirmed on the Suzuki Auto website to receive them. :-)
Just finished watching Dateline Sunday on NBC and they had their usual segment of crash tests. This time it was the midsize side-impact crash test. Sadly, the Verona did poor but Suzuki said they are adding side-airbags to future models the make. Side-airbags are definitely going to be on the 2005 Forenza wagon and maybe the Verona. Let's hope so!
