Suzuki SX4 Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.

Drive Train -- Verified

The manual transmission may "pop" out of 5th gear, this is most commonly caused by a faulty 5th gear synchronizer. Our technicians tell us a revised 5th gear synchronizer is available to correct this concern.

Suzuki SX4 Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., September 6, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The passenger seat contains a sensor which helps determine if the passenger front airbag should deploy or not in the event of a crash. It is called the occupant classification system (OCS), and is a mat that is part of the passenger seat cushion. These vehicles are being recalled because the OCS may fail due to the repeated flexing of the mat from general use of the seat. As a result, in the event of a crash the passenger airbag may deploy when it should not, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion (which includes the OCS sensor mat) to correct this concern.

Engine, January 27, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

As a result of a failed tensioner, the accessory drive belt may slip or come off completely. This will result in hard steering and illumination of the charging system warning light. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the engine may stall as a result of a discharged battery and the engine temperature warning light may illuminate. Loss of vehicle control due to hard steering or engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the tensioner with an improved part to correct this concern. This recall is to begin on February 16, 2011. The Suzuki recall number is SM.

I bought my 2007 Sx4 second hand and had to finance it and have had nothing but trouble with it. It's a good thing I bought an extended warranty. The catalytic converter went out and now my CV axile needs to be replaced and the parts are expense. There isn't a dealership where I live so it's very inconvenient to get it fixed. I don't think I ever buy one again
