The brake lights on your 2004 Suzuki Forenza illuminate when you hit the brake pedal and help prevent you from being rear ended by the cars behind you. Brake light bulbs grow dimmer over time and eventually burn out. This video shows you how to change the brake lights on your 2004 Suzuki Forenza. When you replace the brake light bulb on your Forenza, be careful not to touch the bulb directly with your fingers - the oil from your skin will cause the area that you touched to burn hotter than the rest of the bulb, which causes the bulb to burn out quicker.
If you are going to replace a bulb in your cluster, it is a good idea to replace all of them. Not only will the lights on your Forenza be brighter, you decrease the likelihood you will need to change any of the bulbs again in the near future. A burnt out bulb in the taillight cluster of your Forenza is an excuse for a police officer to pull you over. Check your bulbs frequently and change burnt bulbs promptly.
You would be better off investing in a good, credible, affordable vehicle.
Suzuki no longer makes cars; therefore, the parts are difficult to find and most of their car dealerships are few and far between (in
other words, very few exist to service those with Suzuki cars.)
I purchased a 2004 Suzuki Forenza in 2006, and it had about 20, 000 miles on it.
It stopped working in June 2013 because it needed a new PCM ($1,230 to repair) and it had about 103,000 miles.
However, between the time that I had it and the time that it died, the car had major issues with gasket, valve, oil, trans sensor.
Also, it had at least 4 recalls on parts so be sure to do your research.
The 2004 Suzuki Forenza is available in three trim levels – the S, the LX and a top-of-the-line EX. Configured as a four door Sedan with either an automatic or manual transmission, the Forenza is equipped with a 119 horsepower 2.0-liter gas-powered inline 4-cylinder engine. With available ABS brakes for all models, the Forenza features a nice range of standard equipment, including air conditioning, power steering, windows, mirrors and locks, an AM/FM/CD stereo system with steering wheel audio controls and 15-inch wheels. The EX features leather upholstery.
