I purchased a 2011 Suzuki Kizashi in October of 2012. It was used with only 35,000 miles yet this vehicle had no damage and came with a 6 year Bumper to Bumper warranty.

About 3 days after my purchase I noticed that the finish on the Wheels started to Flake and Peel off. I reported this to the Dealership in which I bought the vehicle and was told by them that they could not do anything about it that I needed to take it to another dealership down the road from them that took care of all their Service and repair Issues.

I took my vehicle to this Dealership in hopes of a resolution. They took pictures of the Wheels and sent them off to Suzuki supposedly and was told I would hear from them in about 2 to 3 days. A week and a half later I ended up calling them back only to be told they could not do anything unless I wanted to pay for half of the repairs. [continued below]....

I do not think I should have to pay HALF of anything seeing as how it is a factory defect in the Wheels which is obvious when you see the Wheels in person or in photographs that I have.  This nice looking car now looks like Crap thanks to the chrome finish coming off and the wheels are now turning a primer black.

West Virginia, Ice, Salt on Roads,

RUST my boy, RUST.  How can this be a manufacturer defect.  You were lucky they said they would pay 1/2.  Besides,  Sazuki USA shut down all american production of Cars, and filed for bankruptcy protection against all creditors.  (You Included)

See the following article. http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2012-11-08/news/35505524_1_kizashi-suzuki-vehicles-volkswagen

They filed Bankruptcy in Nov  2012. So 1 month after you reported the problem, they filed for bankruptcy.  You should have accepted their offer, now you aint gonna get kakka.

Sazuki will no longer sell Cars in America at all.

So this means that your Sazuki Warrenty is worthless, so any problems with the car will be yours, unless you want to stand in line at the Bankruptcy court, and file a unsecured claim against them, and be told sorry, no assets......
