#893 of 1859 2005 Verona
Sep 16, 2004 (12:21 pm)
According to Motor Trend, the 2005 Verona will also receive a tool-kit and a tire-pressure monitoring system. I wonder what the prices will be? Considering that Suzuki hiked the price of the 2004 model by $700 mid-year, I wouldn't be surprised to see a notable increase for the 2005 model, especially with the extra standard equipment.
On a side note, the Iridium spark plugs should improve the gas mileage a little bit. At 5k miles, I swapped my Accord's stock platinum plugs with Denso Iridium plugs and my average gas mileage increased by 2 mpg in town. So 2004 Verona owners may want to consider Iridium plugs if they're not happy with the mileage they're getting.

#898 of 1859 Upto $10000 in cash reward
Sep 17, 2004 (5:11 am)
One of the local Suzuki dealers has a big newspaper ad offering upto $10,000 in cash rewards for all ( new and used ) vehicles purchased at his dealership from September 16th to 18th ( 3 days ).
But he wouldn't say on the phone how much of a cash reward one would get for buying a Verona. He wants me to go to the dealership to find that out.
If someone were to get the Verona for $14,000 ( after the rewards ), is that a good deal? I am worried about all the problems people have mentioned in this forum.
#899 of 1859 2005 Verona/Verona Brochures In stock!
Sep 17, 2004 (5:37 am)
I just went to the dealer to drop of my XL7 for maintenance and my dealer had 1 2005 Verona EX in the back, along with some other 05 Suzukis. One thing that I did notice was that the leather felt more supple. Has anyone else had a chance to sit in an 05 Verona EX yet??? BTW, the 2005 Suzuki brochures (XL7, Forenza, Verona) are in stock and this year each car has a BIG brochure all by itself. This was the first year Suzuki has done this!!!

20,000 miles and one year behind the Verona. The only problem is the ECM. and that is being taken care of on Tuesday. Even without the ECM. fix the car has ran fine if you let it run for a few minutes before taking off. I have the base model with a power sunroof installed at the time of purchase. The car is still solid no rattles or loose bits. I chose not to go with leather due to the fact that my last couple of cars had it and I liked the solid fabric color. For the money I like the car. I live about 40 miles from the dealer and this will be only the second time I have had to go back, not bad for a new model year. The first time I went was due to a check engine light that was caused by the gas cap being loose. Make sure your gas cap is kept nice and snug.

Relax, I was just adding a few minor details that you left out of your post. I wasn't correcting you, so no reason to be defensive

After calling the dealer yesterday to schedule an appointment for the ecm recall, the service manager told me to be there this morning at 7:30. I informed him that I lived 40 miles from the dealer and would have to take time off work to come in. When I arrived I waited 30 minutes for him to tell me they did not have the ecm and suzuki shouldn't have sent the letter out before all dealers had the parts. What a bunch of crap. Now I have to wait for the part and then do it all over again. Too bad my old Daewoo dealer didn't get the Suzuki franchise. This never happened with them.
