Re: Leak under my kizashi

Some more info is needed. Do you have a manual transmission or a CVT? What’s your mileage? Has the transmission fluid ever been serviced? Or any other fluids? (motor oil is a given, obviously) And, just to check, it’s not water/condensation dripping from using the A/C, right? It usually drips from n...

Re: Stuff rolling around in trunk noise?

Lastly, as Ronzuki exemplified, it's a good idea to occasionally check all the nooks and under the trunk floor to look for anything loose in the spare wheel well. I can’t contribute anything of help to this thread, but I wanted to say that when I looked under the trunk mat and in the spare wheel we...

Re: Rearview mirror delaminating

I’ve had the same issue for a while now, too, but didn’t know what it was called, nor really paid it much mind lol. It’s on both the top and bottom of the center part of the mirror, but not the sides, I don’t think. And it’s a little difficult to get the top part in a picture because it sort of blen...

CVT fluid additive - anyone try this?

Anyone ever hear about this product? I first saw it on Amazon (for roughly the same price listed on NAPA) when looking for CVT fluids, and it “fits” the Kizashi. It seems like the CVT fluid equivalent of a fuel additive? You can add it when doing a CVT fluid change, but apparently it also works okay...

Re: Odd stalling at idle RPMs after unusual start-up noise

Pretty scary. Loss of power steering all of a sudden seems like a nightmare. Do you think this could be chalked up as another kind of shenanigan brought on by a dying battery? Is your battery in good health? I had a curiously long ignition last week. The kind that suggests a dying battery. Or a need...

Re: How to change manual transmission fluid

While I have had no issues with MT-90 in my transmission, I think I'll try Red Line MTL next. It's a 75W-80 much like the factory fill. Are you still using this Red Line fluid, Kuro, and have you since made the switch to MTL? How had everything held up? And yes, I’m aware my post here contradicts a...

Re: Does this 2012 SLS Sport w/ bluetooth play audio?

Re: 2nd tranny acting up - time to go?

What’s your dealer situation like? I thought by your last post that you might be in Europe, Australia, or somewhere else with Suzuki auto dealers still around. But I read in your first post that you’re in Colorado? Do you take your Kizashi to a different automaker’s dealership that’s authorized to w...

Re: Does this 2012 SLS Sport w/ bluetooth play audio?

What’s the mileage on the Kizashi? And do you know how it was driven before? One thing you can do right away is check the CVT fluid. I think there’s a dipstick under the hood; the one that isn’t the motor oil dipstick lol. If it’s dirty you should probably do something about it soon. That’s what I’v...

Re: Does this 2012 SLS Sport w/ bluetooth play audio?

I read in the manual that Bluetooth pairing for calls and audio are two separate processes. Not sure if this is how it works in other vehicles with BT. My phone is paired for calls only, so you could imagine my sense of “WTF?” when I tried to play music through BT, came up short, and couldn’t figure...
