#1133 of 1859 Re: Hub cap problem [kctom] - Lemon Law
Mar 10, 2005 (3:23 pm)
My lawyer, who I did not have to pay, said I was on of the lucky ones. Lemon Law here in NC does not require us to pay the attorney. All fees are paid by the Manufacturer. So Suzuki paid the bill. Thankfully, Suzuki was quite cooperative but it was only after their techs experienced the problem first hand. They never took my word for anything. Also in my favor was the dealership. They let me have a loaner free of charge until the mess was straightened out. My laywere told me this is not required of the dealership. She said most folks are stuck with an undriveable car until the cases are settled. So I do not hold any grudges with the dealership because they tried to appease me in my time of need. So I would buy another car from this dealer but it won't be a Suzuki. Anyway, I got a even exchange so to speak because my 2nd Suzuki broke down too!
But to date...I have had any engine problems BUT my radio will turn up the volume by itself. So I have to have them look into it. By now, nothing surprises me with my car. I just go with the flow until I get in a position to purchase a Lincoln LS. Love those cars! But you can believe I will do my homework before I purchase any car!
To all the Verona owners without problems, I wish it had been me because from Jan - Aug of 2004, dealing with it was a nightmare. I wouldn't wish it on anybody.
As far as the hubcaps, I am not buying anymore. I am just going to make sure those techs put them back on correctly when I get my next rotation. But thanks for letting me know.

That's a great lemon law in NC. Most state require that you be responsible for legal fees unless the auto manufacturer does not live up to the law.
So far so good with my new Verona. No problems at all.

How about a low pressure turbo to add 20hp or so to the straight six in the Verona.

I have wondered if a traditional 120 degree V6 will fit under the hood of the Verona. The car is marketed in other parts of the world with an I4. This would explain why Daewoo developed a whole new engine for this car instead of using one of the readily available V6's out there. Which leads me to my point, and I do have one, the turbo might be a real possibility. Personally, I am happy the way it is.

I noticed that the radio in the Verona has an auto-loud function. It's mentioned on page 3-32 of my owners manual. I cannot find any other mention of it. I assume that the radio looks at ambient noise and adjusts the volume accordingly. That might be why your volume is changing. If it is, let us all know.

I will check that out and let you know. It hasn't happened again. But now it's making these wierd noise from the CD player.
I do know that in most of Suzuki CD players, the song on the CD will start from the beginning after the car has been cut off. At least it did in my first Verona. The one I have now, the CD will pick up where it left off, which I prefer, but I knew this was not common. But now there are times when the CD will make a noise when I first turn it on so I have to eject the CD and put it back in.
Hopefully, this is just a radio problem and not a Verona problem. I am trying hard not to blame all the car problems on my car being a Verona as opposed to being normal troubles.

I just purchased a verona and equiped it with TENZO R'S MEAN 6'S (17") with 40 series tires and my ride is actually comfy. keep in mind that I haven't dropped it yet and that will make a big difference. I do plan to go up to 18's after I try a 50 or 55 series tire on my 17's to fill in the gap and keep my ride comfortable. Other then that I'm looking myself for anything i can do to the car. I'll be waiting if anyone finds anything.

I would be very careful in regards to "custom modifications" with this car. I would suspect that if you lower it (within the warranty period) you may void any warranty items in regards to suspension, steering, etc. Unfortunately, many on this board have had to use their warranty.....

Shouldn't an '04 still be under factory warranty? Take it to a dealership and tell them where they can stick -- I mean, ask them nicely to swap out your radio
