#152 of 171 Admin fees
Mar 18, 2009 (10:46 am)
This may have been covered in another post - but here it is anyway.
I have a 4 lease in Quebec that's up in a couple of days with Cite Nissan in Montreal and I was planning on exercising the buyback. The dealer wants to charge me an additional $399 for "admin fees". Except for a charge of $100, there is not mention anywhere in my lease contract of this amount.
Is this standard, worth fighting, etc.
#153 of 171 Suzuki Starter issues
Mar 23, 2009 (8:08 pm)
I have a 07 Suzuki SX4 Sport with only 22,000 miles on it and I'm currently having starter issues. It seems a bit too soon to have starting issues. The battery turns on, but all I ever here is click, click, click. Anyone else having these problems? Is this under warranty?

If all you hear is a clicking noise, it sure sounds like the battery to me. I had a Verona before my SX4 and the batteries last about 22 months. I had it for almost 4 years and you can count on it going bad in almost exactly by the 22cnd month. My SX4 idles at about 12.7 volts, which is a little on the low side I think. Also it doesn't spin over really fast when starting (since new). I suspect it wont even last as long the Verona's.
#155 of 171 2008 SX4 Conv. Auto
Apr 05, 2009 (7:04 am)
2008 SX4 Sport Conv. AT MSRP $17324. I paid $14,499.63 then got another $2,500 in rebates. So that's about $11,999.63 I traded in a Nissan Titan and I'm loving this car. It's not as fun as my last three cars (350Z, Sentra SE-R SpecV, and VW GLI Turbo), but I'm a bit older now and don't need to rip around everywhere. I'm lovin' the handling though. Just like with my motorcycle riding, I enjoy quick turns over speed.

2008 SX4 power accessory outlet stopped working, I don't see the fuse box under the driver's side dash as the owner's manual shows. Do I have to remove the lower dash cover to replace the fuse. Anybody else have the cell phone charger blow the fuse?

I have an 07, and my stereo went out.. I had to pretty much lay upside down in the front seat my head in the floor board and my feet in the air (im only 5 foot) its a very small box and it takes the mini fuses like the suzuki motorcycles. The box is there i think its up higher than the book and it doesn't look like a normal fuse box (comparing it w/ my ford contour and mits mirage) I can't remember but i dont think a fuse puller is in the box either like my other cars.
#159 of 171 2010 Suzuki SX4 Crossover

When did the 2009 became available?
#160 of 171 Is this a good price?
Aug 13, 2009 (5:51 pm)
I honestly don't know anything about cars beside I wanted an AWD vehicle with the lowest price and best gas mileage possible. I have been following Edmunds tips on buying and negotiating. All said and done I purchased a new '09 AWD SX4A Hatchback-Technology Package for 17,400 in addition to a far trade and $1250 suzuki rebate. I felt like I was negotiating forever and was exhausted by the end of it.
Did I get a good deal?
Could it have been possible to get a better deal had I been more patient?
Also, I paid a bunch of additional fees in addition to the ones on the invoice. How do I know which ones are legit/unavoidable and which are bogus?

The sales people do not want to show cars or be with you on a test drive (must sign demo contract). Sales people do not show up on the day for delivery( Salesperson, said "I not want to be here"). Mangers are liars about credit history, interest rates, terms and product. Mangers are liars about returning deposit. Finance people liars about best possible rate. No wants to ask questions about the car. Dealership not want to warranty option installed at dealership. Service department does not follow warranty agreement. Every person there very disorganize and unprofessional. No ones knows how to take a message or return a phone call. New cars have many miles on them. Interior of vehicles are very dirty and exteriors very dirty. Stay away from dealership.
