#1 - Wiring problem of the 2005 Suzuki Forenza
Back in Nov 2012 I took my 2005 Suzuki Forenza in for a recall repair as suggested the recall was on the wiring harness that put the headlights on and off (I had been having trouble with my headlights popping on and off at random times) so after I obeyed the recall I noticed that the problem was fixed so in Jan 12 2013 my car was sitting at a local applebees parking lot completely turned off nothing plugged in no lighters in the car just sitting there when someone ran into the restaurant and shouted "whose gold Suzuki is that? its on fire" needless to say when I ran out the dashboard was completely in flames the fire dept came to rescue and at my request a fire investigator investigated the incident and concluded that the fire started as a result of a electrical short in the wiring harness. . . (yes the "recalled'' "fixed" part) the actually dealership that "fixed" the recalled part has already stated that they arent taking responsibility for it & I am waiting to Suzuki corporate to conclude their findings I truly hope Suzuki does the right thing in this unfortunate matter if not I am prepared to take legal action but im praying they will do the right thing and take responsibility. This problem occurred on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

#7 - Wiring problem of the 2005 Suzuki Forenza
This is a rough draft of the letter I will be sending to Suzuki: I bought my Suzuki Forenza in February of 2005. I have taken my car three times to Suzuki of west broward for an oil leak. The first time they told me that I had an aftermarket oil filter (from meineke). I had my doubts that this was the problem. I authorized that they change the oil filter. When I brought my car home it was still leaking. I was charged $28. 04 for the service that didn't solve the problem. I brought the car back and it was diagnosed as having a porous oil pan. I was not refunded (nor offered to be refunded) my $28. 04 for the oil change and filter change. The parts were not in stock and I was told that they would arrive the same week. They arrived the following Tuesday afternoon. The oil pan was replaced. The car was still leaking oil. I took it a third time and they could not determine the cause. They said there was a recall on the vehicle. Besides the oil leak, the power steering has been making a humming sound when I would turn the steering wheel. This problem I took to bill seidles Suzuki in miami. I was told that the rack and pinion was dirty. This seemed to work for some time but now there is still a lower hum. Before these two setbacks, there were minor problems that arose after the 36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty was expired. A bulb went out in the dash and the fog-light bulbs would continuously burn out. I believe this is a grounding problem in the car that produces interference on the radio directly related to my acceleration of the car. After the first year of owning this car, it has been problem after problem. I have noticed that the service centers for Suzuki in south florida are of the poorest quality. There is no attention and it seems that parts are never available at the facilities for repairs. I am extremely disappointed with the performance of Suzuki and the customer service of the company. The failure date was Jan. 1, 2006.
#8 - Wiring problem of the 2005 Suzuki Forenza
The vehicle was a 2005 Suzuki Forenza. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was KL5JD56Z45_. Low beam headlights went out. Only high beams work. All fuses good, replaced bulbs, still good and to this day still unfixed. No service department in jonesboro arkansas to test electrical system to find out why low beam headlights do not operate. No running day lights either. Day light switch says on but is not on. Continuing problem and do not drive car at night. Email interview update (may 7, 2007):the dealer had to take the dashboard apart and get to the wiring behind the firewall. (the area behind the gauges). The low beam wiring was burnt as was the plastic harness Suzuki used to keep the wires together. The wiring for the low beam lights was cut and reattached outside the harness. The mechanic had to call Suzuki technical service to discover this, as the dealer ordered a light switch assembly for my car. It was replaced but still no lights so that was not the problem. The mechanic also stated Suzuki knows of this but because no damage has been reported they did not issue a recall of harness. My harness would of caught the car on fire because it was burnt and melted. The dealer was very helpful but did not state on invoice the area they really fixed and charged Suzuki with the light assembly fixture only. The lights work fine now but I wander if the other wires attached to this area will do the same thing. It was 01/10/07 when this wiring issue happened.
