Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza
IHAVE A 2006 FORENZA SUZUKI. DRIVING HOME LAST NIGHT FOR OVER 50 MILES IT DID FINE. PULLED UP TO STOP LIGHT STARTED TO PULL OUT AND TRANSMISSION PULLED VERY VERY SLOW AND ONLY WHEN I ACCELERATED HEAVILY. REVERSE WORKS FINE. When I put my 2006 forenza in reverse, it will sometimes actually jump and then then check engine light will come on. After it does this it doesn't appear to being going into gears right and transmission seems to drag. If I put it thru the gears 1-3, then into drive it will start driving correctly and sometimes the light goes off after I turn it off and turn it back on but when I put it in reverse again and it jumps again the process starts all over. The rpm's get up high when I try to drive in D without going back to 1-3 then putting in drive. I have never seen a car do this before
Is this car still under warranty? if so take it back to the dealer and don't accept it as repaired till you drive it. sounds like the logic that controls the transmission is flipping out, sometimes they will tell you that it needs a reflash. what this amounts to is that the manufacturer put some not so great programming in the logic when they built the car but now they have a patch or fix that makes it work better but you have to pay them for their time to install the fix. ask them what they will charge you for the privilege and decide if it's worth it to you. there is a recorded technical service bulletin about harsh shifts for your car. well, actually there are two, the latest one a revision of the first. i would try to make this their problem, it really is. hope this helps.
