Suzuki Reno Recalls

Headlight Switch And Module May Melt

The headlight switch and daytime running lamp module may overheat, melt and cause a risk of fire. Dealers will replace the signal switch, add a jumper relay kit and replace the daytime running lamp module free of charge to resolve the concern.

The High and/or Low Beam Headlights May Fail

Increased resistance due to poor contact between the terminals of certain wires can generate heat that can melt the splice pack used to connect the power circuit wires for the headlamps. This can result in intermittent or total loss of low/high beam headlamp function. If the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps to correct this problem. The Suzuki recall number is NU.

Suzuki Reno Reviews

Overall not a horrible car. Tends to make a rattling noise when idle. Ok gas mileage.
The Reno has a transmission sensor,that wears out frequently.we bought it from a auto service dealer. he replaced a faulty fan and later a leaky engine seal,then the trans sensor went out.This causes the car to slip out of gear or run at an unresponsive speed. Shutting the engine off and restarting temporarily solves the problem. I find i made a huge mistake purchasing this car.It looks great, ...
We just bought this car for may daughter? The kid who had it put lights under the car. Well we drove the car home and couldn't get the key out! Took the shiftier plate of the automatic shiftier and the two wires were broke off. HELP? We want this lights off. Also the dimer switch was removed to put a switch in to turn these lights on and off so we have no dimmer switch. HELP
