SOURCE: check engine light on newly purchased suzuki forenza 06

Sounds like an intermittend problem. Once the engine light comes on, the computor stores a code in it and can be retrieved whether the light is on or not, called a pending code, I have done it plenty of times.I would take the car back, or to another dealer and tell them to hook up a code scanner to it.It's under warranty, they should do further testing.
Once the warranty runs out, you are on your own, you pay for what ever is wrong, and can be expensive.

They have been doing well and there problems are fewer than most. Sounds like you have a pretty good car. Have those trouble codes checked and repaired though so it does'nt cause problems down the road. Good luck.

I do not have a code book or chart for your model car but all codes with 700 are pertaining to the transmission

Take it back,they checked nothing, before they sold it to you. That's what they do. Next time, buy from a private party, and learn to do all your own repairs,you'll never have a vehicle issue again.

SOURCE: Overheating.

put your heater on and see if hot air comes out if not the heater core is probably clogged. you could get them to change it and its costly or bypass the heater core and just connect your coolant lines together which will mean no hot air. make sure you drain the coolant first. Or try to force flush the heater core to get it unclogged then after all that put coolant in. If thats no it, run a pressure test on your radiator cap and see if it falls between the proper specifications for a good cap. Right now my suzuki too is overheating and I'm gonna try and bypass the heater core.

Generally, fuel problems cause an engine to lack power.
If the check engine light is on you should have it scanned for trouble codes. The fuel filter should be replaced every 30-50,000 miles and the air filter checked at every oil change.

I also have a 2008 Forenza. It is currently at the dealership because the transmission failed. I took it to the dealership and asked them to look into it when I got an oil change, they said they found nothing. Two days later, the check engine light was on and the car was severly jerking like it could not catch the correct gear. At first they said it was a sensor, and fixed that. I picked the car up, drove 1 mile, and it started jerking again - needless to say, I went back. They told me it could be the transmission module, but if not, they would have to replace the entire transmission. My advise is to be persistant with the dealership to find your problem or they will continue to pacify you and brush you off.
