2010 Kizashi owner here with 106k of mostly trouble free miles; bought it at 14k miles, some insight...

Steering wheel lock issue- When you get the dreaded “Turn wheel...” push the start button to turn off the car; then open the drivers door to engage the steering wheel lock, hold the wheel or jiggle it while closing the driver door. Should start no problem.

Replacing TPMS sensors- Get them replaced; as they are probably due by 2019. The tire shop put in VDO Redi-sensors in mine. Tell them don’t worry about programming (they probably have no clue how anyway- or the Suzuki tool.) Get the EL-50448 TPMS trigger tool on Amazon for $15 and follow the drivers door button procedure on this site, complete as described and voila.

I’ve had complete success. Love my Zuki!!!

Needing new tires this fall/winter and was thinking nearing 10 years is time to replace the sensors. My luck I'd get the tires put on and then a month later I'd have to pay to dismount and rebalance all over again.

Seems there are a bunch of the same p/n on Amazon...
Is this the EL-50448 you are referring to?

or this one:

or some other one in particular....
thanks!
