Hello all, I am new to the forums and wanted to say hello. Also, I have a 2005 Verona with 3000k miles. I love everything about the car except the transmission and the interior storage. Can someone explain the "HOLD" button to me? On two separate occasions I have tried to pass someone from about 35 mph and there is a tremendous hesitation with a full red line boost in rpms. On one occasion, I completely blew the gear and slowed to a crawl until the tranny figured things out....anyone else blowing gears or experiencing terrible hesitations?

<_< I&#39;ve experienced the exact same thing, I ended up going back to the dealership and having them to demonstrate it for me personally.
That&#39;s the only thing I can tell you because I still have difficulty using it. :angry:

I have a 2004 Verona with the same Hold button on the console. When you have it in the hold position, you&#39;ll see the word hold on the dash. This allows you to disengage the transmission altogether. You&#39;ll need to start out in first, then shift to second, onto third and finally fourth gear. It&#39;s a stick shift without the clutch. If you are wanting to pass and are already in fourth you&#39;ll need to downshift to third to get that extra boost of power. The automation of the automatic is converted to manual, you&#39;ll have to do the shifting yourself.

This is a great way to feel like a kid again without all the excercise from your left foot on the clutch. The hold button also allows you to stay in first gear while traveling on snow for a little extra traction, kind of like granny gear in an old 57 Chevy truck I had as a teenager.

Until Suzuki finally got the ECM replaced I had bypassed the computer problems by using the hold button. I understand the Forenza has the same thing.

Just don&#39;t forget that when you are at a stop light and you&#39;re sitting in fourth gear, you&#39;ll lug that engine just like you&#39;re learning to drive a stick shift. The car just won&#39;t go anywhere in fourth at a stand still. Talk about embarrassing.

After awhile you&#39;ll like having this great little feature. Quirky little car, isn&#39;t it???

<_< The hold bitton is for taking off in snow and ice.. so you dont (they say) spin as quick and loose traction

I&#39;ve got a 2004 Verona EX w/6000 trouble-free miles. The only thing that really bugged me about my Verona was the way it shifted; the shifts (especially the 1-2 shift) took way too long. It would "linger" between gears. Suzuki (ok, GMDAT) released a software update in 6/05 that completely changed the behavior of this transmission. I recommend everyone who owns a Verona/Epica/Magnus go to their dealership and demand the latest software update for their transmission control computer (it&#39;s seperate from the engine ECU) You will LOVE the difference.
