problem #1

Jan 012002

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles
When starting the car it shakes for two to three minutes and then finally runs normal. Before this it won't start. The dealer replaced the starter but I still have this problem. The dealer says they can't do anything about it unless they can duplicate the problem. So now I have to worry about the car breaking down.
