-P0121 code. Throttle body replaced. 1 yr warranty -Code returns, replaced computer with used one. -Code returns, take vehicle to dealer, recommend throttle body replaced. I give up due to my inexperience. - 11 months later, attempt to fix car again, throttle body replaced under warranty. Code returns. -Take car to dealer, who recommends a new-new computer, even after i inform them this code has persisted over 2 computers. This is done on Suzuki's recommendation. -code returns. they continue diagnostics, install a new sensor and hook up computer to catch information as the light comes on. -I am now being told I need a 3rd throttle body replacement (by Suzuki).
My problem is that now I am out of warranty. However, Suzuki has given me TWO faulty throttle bodies, and refuses to give me a 3rd. This feels quite unfair- they are the ones who gave faulty parts. Are there any laws that might protect me here? Any advice or resources would be appreciated; i don't know where to look. CA resident

Although we’re not lawyers and not permitted to provide legal advice, to my knowledge, State of California "lemon laws" apply to new vehicle purchases as opposed to replacement services; however, you might want to contact the California Bureau of Automotive Repair for specific guidelines. What I’d advise is to not continue taking your vehicle to a dealership if they are not going to cover the components under warranty. Instead have a professional mobile mechanic complete these repairs; or sell the Suzuki and purchase something a little more reliable; as fuel system issues are common with these vehicles.
