The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an EVAP system purge fault. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software update available which can correct this concern.

Suzuki Reno Recalls (Recent)

Electrical & Lights, August 13, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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

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

I like the car, the only inconvinient is the air bag on

problems with driver side air bag light. Common to many Suzuki cars since 2005 (I learned too late). Dealers and mfr know of the problem, but no recall... want to charge buyers about $1000 to fix.

Lots of road noise from back of car. Runs great, just loud.

Air is bit weak, but works.

Some noise from transmission bearings when downshifting.

Generally, strong running car, as long as you don't hit anything and need airbags.

Not a bad car, its just a middle of the pack member in a tough class. Not one outstanding feature on it. Unlike american makes it has a good looking interior made of cheap plastic. The engine is underpowered but responds well to tweaks. Transmission can be clunky when its cold. Steering is responsive but not in your face. Suspension is right where you'd expect it to be. I think this car has a bad rap because it's made by Daewoo and rebadged as a Suzuki, but overall it can keep up well with its competitors. Just don't expect it to be a BMW and you'll be happy.

Overall not a horrible car. Tends to make a rattling noise when idle. Ok gas mileage.
