Summary of Complaint

I HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE AIR BAG SENSOR UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT OF MY 2008 SUZUKI SX-4 CROSSOVER AWD. THE AIR BAG LIGHT ON THE DASH COMES ON AND STAYS ON, AS WELL AS THE PASSENGER SEAT BELT LIGHT ON THE INFORMATION DISPLAY COMES ON AND STAYS ON. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY CHECKED THE CODE AND FOUND A CODE RECORDED FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. THEY COULD NOT DETERMINE WHAT TRIGGERED THE CODE HOWEVER THEY SAID THEY RESET THE SYSTEM AND IT SHOULD BE FINE. THE SAME DAY THE LIGHTS CAME BACK ON SO I TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE SAME DEALER. THIS TIME THEY TOLD ME THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE UNDER SEAT ASSEMBLY WHICH CONTAINS THE AIR BAG SENSOR WAS BAD AND WOULD NEED REPLACED AT A COST OF $2500 JUST FOR THE PART. I WENT ON THE INTERNET AND SEARCHED FOR SIMILAR PROBLEMS AND WAS SURPRISED TO FIND THAT THERE ARE MANY OTHERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. THE COMPANY HAS NOT AGREED TO DO ANYTHING TO ALLEVIATE THE PROBLEM FOR ME OR THE OTHERS THAT HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I HAVE ALSO NOT BEEN ABLE TO DISCERN FOR SURE WHETHER THE AIR BAGS WILL WORK AS LONG AS THE VEHICLE HAS THIS PROBLEM. IF NOT IT IS A DEFINITE SAFETY PROBLEM AND SHOULD REQUIRE A RECALL TO FIX THE PROBLEMS OR REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PARTS. TO BE A . I HAVE BASICALLY BEEN TOLD THAT SINCE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY THAT I AM OUT OF LUCK, HOWEVER I FEEL THAT IF THIS IS A DEFECT THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF AND HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING ABOUT THAT THEY SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE, ESPECIALLY IF THE PROBLEM IS POTENTIALLY ENDANGERING THE OPERATORS OF THESE VEHICLES. THE CAR WAS AT THE SUZUKI DEALER BEFORE WARRANTY EXPIRATION AND I STATE THAT PROBLEM AND THEY SAID THAT THEY CAN'T DUPLICATE DE PROBLEM, AFTER THE WARRANTY EXPIRED THE PROBLEM IS BACK AND NOW ALL THE AIRBAGS AND SEAT BELTS LIGHTS ARE ON ALL THE TIME. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE AIRBAG LIGHT IS CONSISTENTLY ON AND WHEN I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER I WAS INFORMED THAT IT'S THE PASSENGER SEAT THAT IS CAUSING THE LIGHT TO BE ACTIVATED. WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY THE DEALER APPROXIMATELY $2000.00 TO REPLACE THE PASSENGER SEAT AFTER THE WARRANTY RAN OUT? SUZUKI SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF SOMEONE IS HURT OR POSSIBLY KILLED IF THERE IS AN ACCIDENT AND THE AIRBAG ISN'T ACTIVATED, BECAUSE OF A SEAT MAT THAT THEY PLACED IN THE VEHICLE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE. IT SEEMS THAT OTHER DRIVER'S OF SUZUKI SX4 CARS HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

AIRBAG LIGHT HAS BEEN ON IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FOR FOUR YEARS. AFTER RECIEVED RECALL NOTIFICATION VIA MAIL (1 YEAR AGO). SUBMITTED REQUEST TO FIX PASSENGER SEAT TO THE ONLY SUZUKI DEALERSHIP ON OHAU, HAWAII AND THEY STATED, "MY VEHICLE DIDN'T FALL UNDER THE RECALL" AND THAT THEY NEEDED TO REPAIR THE ENTIRE AIRBAG SYSTEM. THEY COULDN'T PIN POINT THE PROBLEM AND REFUSED TO CONTACT SUZUKI TECHNICAL REPRESENTATIVES. AS THE SECOND OWNER AND ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY, I CANNOT GO BACK TO THE STATE IN WHICH I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE DUE TO MILITARY ORDERS TO HAVE ANY OTHER SUZUKI DEALERSHIP FIX THIS. ADDITIONALLY, WITH THE SAFTEY INSPECTION LAWS IN HAWAII, I CANNOT REGISTER THIS CAR IN THIS STATE UNLESS PAY FOR THE ENTIRE REPLACEMENT OF THE AIRBAG SYSTEM OR WAIT TILL THE DEALERSHIP CHANGES THIER MIND ABOUT DOING THE RECALL ON MY CAR. THIS SITUATION I AM IN NOW IS UNSATISFACTORY AND PUTS MY FAMILY AND MY SELF AT RISK.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE HAD THIS SX4 SINCE 3/1/11, ASIDE FROM THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM, I HAVE NO OTHER ISSUES WITH THE VEHICLE. LAST SPRING, AROUND MAY, I HAD THE FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARMS REPLACED. ONLY HAVING THIS CAR FOR 2 YEARS AT THE TIME, AND HERE I AM NEEDING THEM REPLACED AGAIN. I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH ANY PRIOR VEHICLE. I LOVE THIS CAR, I DON'T WANT TO TRADE IT IN. I WOULD FEEL GUILTY TRADING IT IN, AND PUTTING ANOTHER FAMILY IN THIS CAR, SHOULD SOMETHING GO TERRIBLY WRONG. MY HUSBAND AND I DEBATED WHAT THE CULPRIT COULD BE FOR THE NOISES THE CAR MADE FROM 15 MPH TO 70 MPH (ROCK IN A BOX) SOUND AND THE CAR SHAKING THROUGHOUT THE CAR, BUT ALSO IN THE STEERING WHEEL. I DIDN'T WANT TO ACCEPT THAT THE PROBLEM WAS THE CONTROL ARM AGAIN. SO WE REPLACED THE STABILIZER BAR BUSHINGS. THE MECHANIC THAT REPLACED THE BUSHINGS SAID REPLACING THE BUSHINGS WERE NOT GOING TO SOLVE THE ENTIRE PROBLEM BECAUSE THE BALL JOINTS WERE DONE, THEY NEEDED REPLACED. I ALSO HAVE BEEN TOLD BY ANOTHER MECHANIC ROTATING MY TIRES, HAVE SAID THE SAME THING. REPLACING THE STABILIZER BUSHINGS HELP THE ( ROCK IN A BOX) SOUND, BUT NOT THE SHAKINESS THROUGHOUT THE CAR AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THE CAR IS FALLING APART THE WAY IT RATTLES ON THE SMOOTHEST STREET HERE. DOES THIS PROBLEM FALL UNDER ANY TYPE OF WARRANTY OR A RECALL INTRODUCTION? *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS CROSSING A STREET (WITH THE GREEN LIGHT) ENTERING THE DRIVEWAY TO THE APARTMENT COMPLEX, THERE IS A DIP AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE DRIVEWAY SO I WAS DOING ABOUT 3 MPH. A DODGE DURANGO SUV, RAN THE "RED" LIGHT AND STRUCK MY VEHICLE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT DOOR TOTALING THE SUZUKI, KNOCKING THE CAR ABOUT 20 FEET SIDEWAYS, AND RENDERING ME UNCONSCIOUS.. THE DURANGO WAS DOING APPROXIMATELY 45-50 MPH UPON IMPACT, HE WAS NOT LOOKING WHERE HE WAS GOING, HE WAS TALKING TO HIS GIRLFRIEND, AND CONSEQUENTLY DID NOT APPLY THE BRAKES, UNTIL HE STRUCK MY CAR. NONE OF THE AIR BAGS DEPLOYED ON THE IMPACT, WHICH ADDED TO THE LATERAL DIRECTION OF TRAVEL OF MY HEAD AND NECK, CAUSING SEVERE WHIPLASH. SUZUKI HAS HAD PROBLEMS WITH THEIR AIR BAG SYSTEM FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS AND THERE WAS A RECALL OF THE AIR BAG SENSOR, WHICH I NEVER RECEIVED. IN FACT I NEVER RECEIVED ANY OF THE RECALLS ISSUED BY SUZUKI. I HAD DRIVEN THE CAR OVER 100,000 MILES WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS AT ALL, HOWEVER THE MAIN IMPACT SAFETY FEATURE WAS NOT OPERABLE AND SUZUKI KNEW IT AND FAILED TO INFORM ME. I AM FORTUNATE THAT I AM ALIVE, BROKEN AND BRUISED, BUT ALIVE. MY GRANDSON IS GENERALLY WITH ME, AND WOULD HAVE SURELY BEEN KILLED, HAD HE BEEN IN THE CAR AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

SX4 AIR BAGS RECALL NUMBER: 13V405000 RECALL DATE: 09/06/2013 PROBLEM SUMMARY: SUZUKI MOTOR OF AMERICA, INC. (SUZUKI) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006-2011 GRAND VITARA AND 2007-2011 SX4 VEHICLES. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, OVER TIME, THE OCS SENSOR MAT INSTALLED IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT MAY FAIL DUE TO REPEATED FLEXING OF THE MAT FROM USE OF THE SEAT. AS A RESULT, DURING A CRASH NECESSITATING DEPLOYMENT, THE AIR BAG WILL DEPLOY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE FRONT SEAT OCCUPANT IS AN ADULT OR A CHILD. CONSEQUENCE: AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT WITH A CHILD IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE SEAT INCREASES THE RISK OF INJURY TO THAT CHILD. CORRECTIVE ACTION: SUZUKI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT CUSHION ASSEMBLY (WHICH INCLUDES THE OCS SENSOR MAT) FREE OF CHARGE. SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES OF PARTS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO FIX ALL OF THE AFFECTED VEHICLES. OWNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED OF THE RECALL IN OCTOBER 2013 AND WILL RECEIVE A SECOND NOTIFICATION WHEN PARTS ARE AVAILABLE TO HAVE THEIR VEHICLE REPAIRED. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-800-934-0934.

DEALER REPLACED PASSENGER SIDE SEAT CUSHION ASSEMBLY (NO CHARGE). SINCE THE DRIVERS SIDE SEAT CUSHION WAS NOT REPLACED IT MIGHT EVENTUALLY FAIL JUST LIKE THE PASSENGERS SIDE. PLEASE HAVE SUZUKI RECALL THESE CARS AND REPLACE ALL THE FRONT SEAT CUSHIONS, NOT JUST THE ONES THAT FAIL. *TT

Summary of Complaint

AFTER TAKING MY SX4 INTO KIPO MOTORS FOR INSPECTION AND CHECK FOR RICH FUEL AND TICKING, IT PASSED NY EMISSIONS BUT I WAS TOLD I NEEDED A $2000 CATALYTIC CONVERTER AND NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THE SLIGHT TICK. WITH IN 6 MONTHS MY ENGINE BLEW UP WELL DRIVING TO DINNER WITH MY FAMILY IN THE CAR. FLAMES SHOT OUT OF THE HOOD AND OTHER DRIVERS REPORTED FLAMES POURING OUT THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR AFTER IT EXPLODED. KIPO/SUZUKI REPLACED THE ENGINE, AFTER ASSEMBLY TWO CYLINDERS DIDN'T WORK. KIPO NEVER HECKLED ANY OTHER PARTS AND HAD TO REBUILD IT AGAIN AFTER THEY FOUND THE VALVES BROKE CAUSING THE ENGINE TO EXPLODE. NOW THE CAR HAS NO POWER AND AT 2084 MILES ON THE NEW ENGINE THEY SAY THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS STOPPING THE ENGINE FROM WORKING AND DUE TO THE CLOSENESS OF THE WARRANTY END THEY ARE NOT GOING TO FIX IT. THE ENGINE EXPLODED IN THE FRONT. THERE WAS A HOLE THE SIZE OF MY FIST IN THE BLOCK BEHIND THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. CHUNKS OF THE ENGINE BLOCK WERE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD AS WELL BUT THEY SAY NONE OF THIS IS A RESULT OF THE ENGINE EXPLODING. I HAVE SEEN OTHERS WITH THE SAME RICH FUEL AND ENGINE TICK AND WOUNDED ARE THESE TICKING TIME BOMBS? *TR
