Today I brang my car back into my dealership where I purchased it new. My problem was the same as yours and I did the same thing you did with the baggies tied to the end. But the weird thing is it would not leak when I had the baggies on it. so I took it off and left the cap off and put paper towels around it and put it back in the clamp and then drove it around and checked it every time I stoped and I got oil on them. It was time to bring my car to my 2pm appointment at SUZUKI OF BURLINGTON WASHINGTON about 35 miles away. They checked my car for the second time. I waited about an our and they came out from the operating room and said the oil was coming out from the overflow and I was the third person reported in the US to have this problems. So they said they have to replace half of the transmission and they have to order it and they will give me a loaner car when they start the work...
By the I am from Bellingham WA what about you... I will keep you posted as you do the same for me.... They better fix yours too. The should fix it and not just glue a cap on so it won,t leak that is so stupid. .... Peace SOMO

Hi does anyone know how to get aerio bumpers at a cheap price? I have a 2002 Aerio GS and the front and rear bumpers have cracks on them. The dealer is asking for about 300 each.

Does this make sense? I have a Suzuki Aerio SX. Really a nice car. Powerful and a fun ride. AM radio has a background hum on many stations. If I turn on the lights it sounds crystal clear. What should I do about this?

Use this as an excuse to subscribe to satellite radio? JUST KIDDING!
Sounds like interference from possibly the ignition system. Did you recently install new spark plugs by chance?

Not at all. I've done nothing to the car. It's only 5 months old.

My 05 was doing that and they replaced bushings in the front end that were too small. There was a service bullentin out to fix it. Check the NHTSA web site for a repair bullentin for the 06. It is probably the same thing....I thought I was going to lose a wheel or something everytime i hit a bump.

I had the same problem in Mississauga,Ontario Canada. I smelled oil from time to time and observed a small amount on the transmission housing just below the breather hose.
The first time I brought it in (I have a 2005 Aerio with 8000 KM) the mechanic changed the transmission oil (believing it was overfilled at the factory) and cleaned the breather hose.
The problem reoccured after 3 weeks. I brought it back for a second time and the mechanic decided to replace the breather hose as this is where the oil was coming from. What was interesting to note was that the design of the breather hose on my 2005 was completed different from the breather hose on the new 2006. The one on the 2006 was longer and more flexible...in fact the mechanic had to steal one from a 2006 that was in the show room as the dealership did not have any new hoses in stock....this is how the mechanic found out about the new breather hose design....he said that Suzuki should have informed the techs about this new designed change.
Ever since doing this...changing the breather hose to the new design...I have had no problems.
#230 of 439 problem with 2005 aerio air conditioning - clogged drain hose?
Jun 05, 2006 (2:52 pm)
Was driving my 2005 aerio this weekend and turned on the A/C for the first time. After about 1 hour, I noticed water drops on the passenger mat, just below the glove compartment. I looked under the glove compartment and found a reservoir filled with water. It was swooshing back and forth as I turned left or right. I also noticed a plug that was attached to this reservoir.
I brought it in to the dealer who advised me that the evaporator drain hose was clogged / saturated. It was cleared and everything runs ok for now. I have only had this car for 6 months...and the drain hose is clogged????? Why was there water coming out??? The dealer could not explain this...only the cause.
Has anyone else had this problem??
What is the purpose of this reservoir that captures the water??
Was is the purchase of
