i am new on here and i' am wondering if you can help me..i too have a 2006 forenza .i beleive i have this "transmission sensor " problem..i'm taking the car to the suzuki dealership tonight. i was hoping it was covered but apparently not..my car has approx 54,000..i was drving then all of a sudden it would seem like it slipped into neutral..then it would be fine..the check engine light came on and now it wont go off..i took the car to an auto parts store and they hooked it up to their "computer" . although they dont have suzuki listed in their system all indication show a short circut connection....how much did this cost yyou? is there anything we can do to have suzuki make this a recall if that many people have had the same problem??

YUP THATS WHAT IT WAS DOIN, IF YOU TAKE IT TO ADVANCE AUTO, THEY CAN RUN THE CODE, HOWEVER THEY CLEAR THE CODE TO AND THEN THE DEALERSHIP CANT RUN IT, WHICH THEY WILL NEED TO DO TO SERVICE IT. IT COST ME ABOUT 400 PLUS CAR RENTAL, BECAUSE THEY HAD TO HAVE IT A COUPLE OF DAYS. AND I HAVE NO CLUE IF THERE IS ANYTHING WE CAN DO, I WISH I KNEW, I AM SOOOO OVER THIS CAR.

If any of you guys know of a class action sue against Suzuki , I purchased a brand new ford escort a few years ago and I never had any problems with this car until the 7 year mark I had to replace the radiator, my main regret is that I bought a Suzuki. I should have bought a Toyota or a Honda at least these cars have proven themselves, my next vehicle will be an American made proven car. :

I bought my teenage daughter a 2004 Forenza and have had lots of troubles. I always get the run around and once they even had the car about 6 weeks to fix. Now the car has a blown motor because of sludge. Suzuki says it is our lack of oil changes which is crap!!!! Any lawsuit I will gladly be part of. I owe 5,000 and Suzuki wants me to pay between 2 and 3,000 more for a new motor.
Fed up. I bought my teenager what I thought was a reliable car with a good warranty "America"s #1 Warranty" that bull. She is now 21 pregnant and without a car in another state. Her husband serves our country while we are getting ripped.

Gesh sorry to hear.. I cant even take my car to suzuki to hear my warranty is fake.. Closest Suzuki to me is about 100miles away and requires me to take at lest a day off work to take it in to get it looked at. (something i cant afford to do now days..)
