Question about 2005 Suzuki Forenza
Car starts to buck/shake when going above 40mph. Already checked tires, wheels and struts, all fine.
Well you have to always use the scan tool & road test
to look at data
Transmission aside you have to see if the motor runs properly
Bucking could be old spark plugs,failed ignition coils,bad egr valve
& more,basic preventative maintenance your not aware need to be
done every 2 or 3 years & look at data a couple times a year
Since 2005 the exhaust converter may be worn out so look at the
scan tool info on a road test no dealer is going to do much that is needed
If you failed to change the trans fluid every 3 years then who knows
how that's doing,not well possibly.
The dealer wasted your time,blew you off

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.

Check if the kill switch is engaged. Check for faulty starter solenoid or disconnected solenoid wire. Check for defective ignition switch. Check for defective starter motor.

If the light flashes on and off, the vehicle has a severe problem that will cause additional damage. You should not be driving the vehicle.

Get a third opinion. I don't see how the Suzuki dealer person could diagnose a problem from a phone call.
Take off a wheel and see how much brake pad you have left. The pulsating sounds like the rotors need resurfacing. Replacing pads and resurfacting rotors shouldn't be a major expenditure.

The more I read your question the more I feel like you have a negative caster issue, get an alignment done on your vehicle and tell them what you feel and at what speed and they will know. Please let us know how you make out.

Testimonial: "Thank you, again for your help. Finally had front-end checked and after my daughter's test-drive, discovered front right axle slightly bent and grease had leaked out. Replaced right axle and car runs great! Again, thank you."
