Suzuki Problems

A Rattling Type Noise May be Heard from the Front of the Engine

An abnormal noise from the timing chain area is likely due to a failed timing chain tensioner. This condition is generally caused by lack of oil to the timing chain guides and the guides will need replacement. 

The check engine light can illuminate and set a P0008 trouble code when this issue occurs. This is due to the Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensors detecting that the engine timing is out of specification. 

PCM Software Update Available to Correct False PCM Fault Codes

Powertrain control module (PCM) software updates are available to correct false fault codes related to the oxygen (O2) sensors and evaporative control (EVAP) system.

Oil Leak/Noise Due to Timing Chain Cover Gasket/Tensioner Failure

The timing chain cover gasket and timing chain tensioner may fail, causing an oil leak or excessive noise. Because removing the timing chain is labor intensive, this can be an expensive repair.

Suzuki Recalls

Power Steering Fails

The power steering pump may seize due to an internal clearance issue with the pump body and fluid control valve. Dealers will replace the power steering pump free of charge to resolve the concern.

Transmission Shifter

These vehicles are being recalled because the transmission gear selector can be moved out of the "Park" position without depressing the brake pedal. This could cause the vehicle to roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the shift selector in affected vehicles to correct the concern.

Fuel Tank Can Crack And Leak

Spider webs may be found restricting the evaporative canister vent hose, which can result in the fuel tank cracking from negative pressure build up. Dealers will replace the vent line with one that will prevent restriction free of charge to resolve the concern. Any hoses found that have webs in them will result in dealers also replacing the fuel tank.

Suzuki Reviews

It was a great car. I had a few problems mostly due to my neglect. Like everyone else I do have the same problem with the headlights low beam blow out. One other annoying problem is whenever the battery cable is disconnected for whatever reason, the car engine behave ridiculous for a day or two until it resets itself.
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, ...
