    Default LIANA Failure

    Dear friends, I own a Liana. I very satisfied with it. I give it 100% mark in terms of comfort, engine performance, saftey, style and durability. I bought it three years ago. I used to take it to the suzuki authorized dealers. They used to inform every time iwith a new problem nad charged me heavy bucks for repairs in addition to inconvenience of keeping car at the dealership for a couple of days. Frustrated I wanted to sell it. I was surprised that no one waw ready to pay even 50% of the price of my car. AT last I decided to study Auto engineeering with the guidance of one of my frioend who happens to be a n auto engineer. I then started discussing it with my old mechanic. Now MAshallah, for the last one and half year I have spent nothing on my car except te price of filters, oil, lubricants and I changed brake pads recently. I think that suzuki dealership mechanic are themselves a cause of failure of this car. They invent problems and charge bucks from customers. For example they will say that car is not havi "PICK". It needs to adjust TApets. then they will say park the car here. we will take the head out and send it fro lath work. then it will return next day and car willl be returned after tthree days. they charge 5000 rupees just for tapets adjustment. Now I have learned the technoque and I can fix the problem in just one hour myself with even better accuracy with no spending at all. But I never jhad need ed to adjust tapets after I stopped gooing to suzuki people

    I have a bad experience with Honda dealers. I felt some problem while turning car and took it for checkup. The mechanics told me that complete suspension needs to be changed with few other stuff and total cost of around 35K. I took it to my mechanic and he get Ball Joints repaired and fixed them again in 500 Rs only and its been almost 2 years without any issue. Difference is huge and clearly exhibit mentality and thinking of these so called Authorized Dealers
    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    Let me share with you my experience. My cars AC stopped functioning once. It was not turning on despite turnng the button on. I took it to a dealer and he said that ac needs to be changed. He said that we had same problem in another liana and ultimately we had to change the ac unit. I argued that only one example is not sufficient to decide that each liana ac needs to be changed with a new one. But he never relented. So I took it to an electrician who after checking fixed the probled charging only 200 rupees and informed me that electrical sysytem of the car is in pulses instead of steady current flow. So if there is touching of wires with the body this problem comes on.


    At another time a suzuki dealer took thermostat valve of my car out without my consent and refused to replace it back saying that it will spoil the car. I had to get it replaced from a road sde mechanic

    3s dealers just change the old one parts with new and so called geniune parts thats why people are happy to go there and pay heavily on the otherhand a local mechanic will inspect first the parts than decided to change or not thats whty i called a good mechanic is that who will repaired or inspected ur old parts .........

    In terms of price 3S Dealers are big chores, but in terms of price and quality, normal mehanics are even bigger chores!! i have only experienced, toyota dealers, the are very espensive and their genuine parts are expensive too!! but never exeperinced that they have ever suggested me to do anything which was not the cause of the problem!! Heard that suzuki dealers are big chores in service.


    Well!! i agree, one should also have the basic knowlege of cars!! When i was 18-20 i used to criticize my elder brotehr and parents, that they gave me an old FX car!! On every next day problem arised, but that car really gave me a lesson and i got so much knowlge in terms of mehanical and electrial work of the car, that now, no mehanic can easy fool me!! Since then, i changed cars twice, but thanks to Allah that i never got caught in the hands of ehanics !!!


    More importantly, its better to take advice from 2-3 mehanics, before changing or touching any original thing of your car!!!!

    yaha to away ka awa hi bighra huva hai people wants to make easy money with less work we r talking about cars but apart from it other depart r also corrupted once I had a bad experience in repairing my split ac,I took it to the mitsubishi dealer for the repairing,after inspecting my ac unit they said that it requires 6 to 8k for the repair,the ac needs it's condensor to be changed.I was surprised and bring back my ac with me,then I consult a local technician of my area, he said he will charge 1000 for it and believe me after that my ac is working cool.Guys avoid running after big names who pretends to be faithfull but hiding their faces under the layer of lies.

    the failure of liana is the car itself....... have u seen the car from far? the ratio is like 1:1 the height is the same as the width....its like a cube...... plus the money is also not less then its competitors.
