missus got a Alto about 4 months back.
mid of July, encountered engine stalling when driving. Sent to service center, was told the wire snapped, and got a fix in.
within a day or two, car started to jerk. service center we went, and told the previous fix is not done properly. "enhancement" was done. report sent.
mid of Aug, folks from KL came, and provided "new" rework.
early Sep, car stalled again. rework provided again.
mid Sep, folks from KL came again, with new set of wire.
asked them about how secure this is. they can't tell.
asked them how severe they think the issue is since car can stall middle of driivng. they dont think it is severe. even if life might be endangered.
is there anything we can do?
we asked if Suzuki can buy the car back, they said no... we will settle with Myvi ><

Suzuki, if you are reading this... you suck, big time.

check it out in the 'peugoet 5008' forum....if i'm not mistaken, the ecu had some problems and it took about a month to settle it!

This story sounds like one of my ex-colleagues that owned a Suzuki Swift.. car stalled la.. jerking la etc etc.. the funny thing about the story was that rats were inhibiting her car and to get to their "nest", they had to chew a bit of the spark plug cables (hence the jerking).. so, the problem might not be the product, but the environment that the car was kept in..
just thought i'd share the story tongue.gif
