Summary of Complaint

QUITE A FEW OF THE SCREWS OR GROMMETS THAT HOLD THE BODY PARTS ONTO MY CAR HAVE FELL OUT. MY FRONT BUMPER WAS BARELY BUMPED AND IT BROKE ONE OF THE CLIPS ON THE BUMPER AND IS NOW TIED UP WITH A SHOE STRING. MY A/C COMPRESSOR HAS ALREADY HAD TO BE REPLACED AND FOR SOME REASON THE COOLING FANS ARE NOT WORKING PROPERLY. THE STRUCTURE ON THIS CAR IS POOR. THE LOCK TO THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOW JUST SPINS NOW, SO IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACE. I HAVE ALREADY HAD TO REPLACE THE TRUNKS LOCK DUE TO SAME PROBLEM. I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH ALSO DUE TO KEY NOT OPERATING PROPERLY. CLIPS FROM BOTH BUMPERS HAVE FALLEN OFF FOR NO REASON. I EXPECTED MORE FROM A SUZUKI CAR. I BELILEVE THIS WILL BE MY LAST PURCHASE FROM THEM. *TR

VIN: 2S3TC52C226****

Summary of Complaint

AFTER SEVERAL MISDIAGNOSES FOR THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY CAR GOING INTO GEARS THE PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED TWO MONTHS AFTER THE CAR WENT OUT OF WARRANTY. I WAS CHARGED TO FIX THE PROBLEM WHICH WAS COMPLETELY UNFAIR. THE FIRST TIME I BROUGHT THE CAR IN THE SERVICE MANAGER SAID I WASN''T PUSHING HARD ENOUGH ON THE BRAKE. THE SECOND TIME HE SAID IT WAS DO TO THE COLD WEATHER. THE THIRD TIME HE SAID THAT UNTIL THE CAR COULD NEVER GET BACK INTO GEAR HE WAS UNABLE TO FIX IT UNDER WARRANTY. THE FOURTH TIME HE FIXED A PART AND IT STILL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. THE FIFTH TIME I TOOK IT TO ANOTHER SUZUKI DEALERSHIP WHERE THEY PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THAT THE OTHER DEALERSHIP DID NOT INSTALL THE PART CORRECTLY. THEN THE SIXTH TIME THEY SAID IT IS A DIFFERENT PART AND FIXED IT AND CHARGED ME BECAUSE IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY. THIS PROBLEM TOOK ONE YEAR AND ONE MONTH TO FIX. THE DISTRICT MANAGER SAID BECAUSE IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY THAT HE WOULD NOT APPROVE THE COST OF FIXING IT. EVEN THOUGHT THE PROBLEM STARTED AFTER ONLY TWO YEARS OF ME OWNING THE CAR AND WAS CLEARLY BACK WHEN IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY. THE CAR TO THIS DATE STILL DOESN''T HAVE 30,000 MILES ON IT.

Summary of Complaint

FROM NEW THROUGH APPROXIMATELY 2000 MILES (WHEN THE DEFECTIVE PART WAS REPLACED), THE VEHICLE WOULD STALL ABRUPTLY WHEN THE THROTTLE WAS APPLIED FROM A STAND STILL. THIS HAPPENED SIX TIMES AND EACH WAS AT AN INTERSECTION WHERE TRAFFIC BEHIND ME COULD HAVE COLLIDED WITH THE VEHICLE AND CAUSED SERIOUS INJURY AS IT IS A MOTORCYCLE. THE SELLING DEALERSHIP WAS CONTACTED AND THEY INITIALLY HAD NO SERVICE BULLETINS REGARDING THE POSSIBLE CAUSE. REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET INFORMATION FROM THE MANUFACTURER SUZUKI WERE UNSUCCESSFUL. THEY LOGGED THE COMPLAINT WITH THE DECLARATION THAT THEY HAD NO REPORTS OF SUCH FAILURES AND SUGGESTED I CONTACT THE DEALERSHIP WHICH I HAD. THE DEALER FINALLY GOT UNOFFICIAL WORD THAT THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR MAY BE AT FAULT. IT WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY AND THE PROBLEM SOLVED. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH OTHERS WITH THE SAME MODEL MOTORCYCLE WHO EXPERIENCED SIMILAR STALLING AND THEY WERE UNSUCCESSFUL WHEN THEY CONTACTED THE MANUFACTURER AS WELL. IT IS MY CONCERN THAT MOTORCYCLES ARE BEING SOLD THAT COULD STALL UNEXPECTEDLY AND WITHOUT WARNING CAUSING A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. EVEN THOUGH MY BIKE IS FIXED, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE MANUFACTURER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY INSTEAD OF REMAINING IGNORANT. A RECENT CALL TO THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER BY A FRIEND REVEALED THEY STILL DENY ANY KNOWLEDGE OF SUCH A PROBLEM EXISTS, DESPITE SEVERAL OWNERS PREVIOUSLY REPORTING DIRECTLY TO THEM! DT
