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 444 problem with 2005 aerio air conditioning - clogged drain hose?
Jun 05, 2006 (1:52 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
#231 of 444 Cracked lower control arm!

Has anybody had a problem with the lower front right control arm breaking? While driving up my road the car went straight on me. When I took off the wheel and looked, the lower control arm had snapped. Half of it had obviously been snapped awhile ago, because of the rust, but the other half was a new break. Glad I was almost home and not on the interstate or other road where I would have been going faster. Anybody else?

We bought a used 05 aerio in december. It has been back at the dealer at least 6 times. I just had it towed for the 3rd time, I guess that is why they include the road side assistance. We had the front bushings replaced. One of them 2x. The rear of the car had to be fixed because of the tires going bald. They are going bald again anyway. The check engine light came on and the car got really sluggish, and they said it wasn't on when they looked at it and the car was fine. Now the check engine light came on again along with the sluggishness. I looked in the owners book, and it said it is an emissions problem. Also my odometer seems to be racking up miles like crazy, and i hardly drive the darn thing anywhere!! I am just venting. I would have kept my old minivan, and fixed it up if I would have known. I need to work on that psychic thing. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Just noticed the problem myself on my '03 Aerio SX. I was going to change the belt and tensioner and called the dealer. The service guy told me that there is a TSB out for this and need to replace an alternator bracket and belt to fix this problem. He told me under 3yrs or 36K miles then warranty but I have 70K. So if your lucky and qualify then have your dealer take care of it free. For me it just happens in drive when stopped when running it's okay.

Jun 27, 2006 (1:10 pm)
My purchase of a new, 2006 Aerio is a nightmare. I took the car in for a tire rotation to a tire specialist and the tires were bald after only a few thousand miles. They told me to take the car back to the dealer, that something was SERIOUSLY wrong with the car. Took it back to the dealer and they sent the car our for an alignment and put two new tires on which was great. A few months later I have the same problem only NOW they won't do anything. They said the tires SHOULD be good for 25,000 miles but if they aren't I must be doing something wrong. I am at a loss....

I delt directly with Yokohama.
But the sidewall blew out on the tire when I first bought the car and there was only about 1,ooo miles on the tire. The side wall of the tire hit a curb and blew out. I currently have 21,ooo miles on the car. The front tires looks like it is going to last till about 36,ooo miles and hopefully I will get about 48,ooo for the rear tires. Where have you bought your tires from in Hawaii? I don't see many places that stock 55 profiles tires. I religious align the tires at least ever 6 months or as often as 3 month with the really poor roads with all of the potholes. AT Firestone they have Lifetime alignment for about $150. I think it was a wise investment, especially since the tires are So Expensive to replace.
