My brakes required replacement with 8 Kms. on the car. Thats right folks !! The first trip from the dealer in a brand new car and the front discs were so badly warped they needed replacement!!! I hear Suzuki dealers don't like this site. Maybe they should stop selling defective cars to hard working people and we wouldn't have so many negative things to say.

Well, I have 06 SX AWD with 7000 miles on it. I drive mostly hiways and get about 24 miles per gallon. I also have some popping noise coming from front end when car go over speed bump. Other than that no problems.

Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) Aerio04 01126R addresses clunking noises from underneath the car, but they charge $2.49 to view the TSB. Do other companies charge to see their TSB. If their is a problem with the car, the adjustment advisory should be Free in my opinion.

I bought my '05 Aerio SX used -- it had 8400 miles on it! At 12500 the emergency brake light started coming on when I made turns. I was on my way to the dealer but rear ended a pickup about 1/4 mile from my destination. I couldn't stop! The other driver asked if I had anti-lock brakes because he heard screeching. Might be time for a lemon lawyer?

Folks, managing about 30 Aerio's (03 to 05) in our fleet, I can safely say that the brakes wear out faster than any other car we have ever run. It's not your driving style etc, it's the car and the pads. They typically get changed on our Aerio's about twice as often than a Toyota Corolla/Echo/Yaris. This is consistent despite driving styles etc across our fleet. If you want to know more....feel free to contact me. georgeautoshare.com

Your brakes wear out quickly ...Hmmmmm ....let me tell you a story about my 2003 Aerio SX .......
I remember the Saturday morning in November 2002 I picked up my brand new 2003 silver SX hatch back from Brampton Suzuki (Toronto, Canada). Right off the dealers lot I noticed a strong shaking in the front suspension whenever I stepped on the brakes. So after only 8 Kms (less than 5 miles) Iím back at the dealer sitting in the service department. The verdict Ö..both front discs are warped and require replacement. It seems this little problem wasnít noticed during the pre-delivery inspection.
A few weeks later, after these new brake rotors were installed, the front brakes begin to make a slight grinding sound. They also make a fairly loud stap when applied in reverse. So, itís back to the local Suzuki dealer and new and improved shims are installed. They almost fix the noise issue. Only the replacement of pads and discs with non-Suzuki parts actually solves the problem a year later. I tried slotted rotors from SuzukiSpeed.com / ThermoQuiet Pads from Wagner. So far, no complaints. The EBC Sport Rotors (drilled and slotted) and EBC Greenstuff pads look wild. Anyone try them yet????
