This is right off of the National Highway Transportation Saftey Adminstration goverment website, where you can look up recalls and service bulletins on any car.
www.nhtsa.dot.gov is the website.

IN CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, A FAULT IN THE ADAPTIVE FUEL CONTROL LOGIC CAN CAUSE SOME VEHICLES TO USE AIR/FUEL RATIOS DURING DECELERATION THAT ARE LEAN ENOUGH TO CAUSE ENGINE STALLING.
ENGINE STALLING COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE (ECM) ON AFFECTED VEHICLES. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING SEPTEMBER 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-800-934-0934.
SUZUKI RECALL NO. KE. CUSTOMERS CAN CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

Hi Verona lovers,
Factory tech reprogrammed ECM for mine but still stalls even more than before. It's at the dealer since Aug 10, 2004. Luckly, I got a rental since then. All attempts failed to find the root cause. Another factory tech has been dispatched.
I baught mine about 2 months ago and put 2300 miles on it before experiencing the Engine Stalling 4 times on me right on the major highly traffic street. I barely pulled over and escaped from the honkers.
This Red baby looks good but drives like a Turkey.

So far since my car has been reprogrammed, it has been running fine...So I pray that this is the fix that will resolve this issue for everyone else as well.
But my advice to veronavictim is to file a lemon law claim like I did. And this time maybe you should try for the buyout but it won't be easy. If you want info about filing a claim, shoot me an email and I will tell you the steps I went through.
BTW - where are all those people in this forum who didn't believe us? ;o)

I'm still here, just reading and wondering if I want the dealership messing with my car that has 19,000 miles and a year in October with just a little rough idol that smooths out when it sits for a couple of minutes. It's been my experience that when you have your car messed with the real problems start.
#874 of 1859 don,t know the ansewers

I think Suzuki is trying to work on improvement of the car for some time to come. I think these updates to the car are words of a manufactor trying to tell its costumers we care. They seam to be very honest about it. And giving loaner and in some cases making your car payment. I did have problems with my car and had to call suzuki about them. Everything was handled not in the speed I would have liked it but the car was finished right. the only thing left is now the ecm. So all in all I think Suzuki is being good to their word! how about you?

Hello all, its been a while since i have posted here. After reading all the posts with the stalling problems, i felt that i had to write. I have 13,250 miles on my verona ex, which is 7 months old. I have a job that requires alot of travel, and i have never had a stalling problem with this car. I did have the cpu changed on a recall,within the first month that i owned the car. And i have had both o2 sensors replaced,but it never caused any problems. I love this car, and as i said before, i also own a 2002 xl7, and sunday the 29th of august,I just bought my daughter a 2004 forenza. I have nothing but good feelings about suzuki, Including the dealer that i bought the cars from. Sorry to hear about all the trouble some are having, but i get alot of compliments on the verona, and i have never had a serious problem.

Hey zodiac, I have Verona EX with 14K miles and have noticed the gas gauge to be a little erratic at times, too. I tend to just watch the miles more than the gas gauge. Last night, I found myself 40 miles from the nearest gas station and the gauge was on empty. I thought my wife had filled it up earlier in the day. I drove the 40 miles at a moderate speed keeping my fingers crossed. The low fuel light never came on and it only required 14.25 gallons when I filled it up.
The best thing about the whole experience was that I had 3 people in the car including a relative visiting from out of town. They all marveled at how quiet the car is. They couldn't even hear the motor or detect upshifts/downshifts when going up and down hills. I love this car.
