Report Filed: Arlington Automall – Suzuki Motors Service Dept. DOESN’T STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT!! RIPOFF Arlington Texas!!
During the spring of ’03 I took my ’02 Sukuki XL-7 in for warranty work. The transfer case had begun to leak oil. I had also been hearing the timing chain rattle during a ‘cold start’. I had been reading on a discussion board that there was a problem with a tensioner, and it was prone to fail. So I requested that they take a look (or listen) at the tensioner. When I called to check on the vehicle they informed me that the gasket was leaking on the timing chain cover, along with the oil filter, and needed to be replaced, all of which would be covered by the 3/36000 warranty. So I told them to go ahead and do the job, but if they were to replace the oil they were to use Mobil 1 synthetic oil ONLY, since it was all I had been running in my vehicle since it had 9K miles on it. When I picked my XL-7 up I was told that there wasn’t anything wrong with my timing chain tensioner. By the way, I find it hard to believe that my “oil filter was leaking””
