I have the same problem same place, did everything you did, got same answer. Mine 2006, it started within first year and is still happening. Also my front breaks pads have been replaced going on 4 times, rotars early on, dealer worthles,I live in SF,CA area very few dealers mine went out of business, have to travel far to any dealership.Between the Lying service dept. regarding tire issue and trying to get billing statements from suzuki finance, will Never buy one again.. No wonder N.California Suzuki sales are Very Poor.

I HAVE AN 8 MONTH OLD S4 SUZUKI VITARA FRONT WHEEL DRIVE, WITH 16,000 MILES ON THE CLOCK. AT 13000 MILES THE REAR TYRES WERE ILLEGAL 1mm OF TREAD ON BOTH OUTER EDGES AND BETWEEN 4-5mm ON INNER EDGES. DEALERSHIP REPLACED TYRES, BECAUSE OF THE 4 WHEEL ALIGNMENT ISSUE THAT THEY AGREED, WAS EXCESSIVE AND WANTED TO SHOW GOOD WILL. THE DEALERSHIP FOUND CAMBER EXCESSIVE, SUZUKI GB STATE THAT ALL THE REAR SETTINGS ARE WITHIN PARAMETERS. A TOTAL FARCE. I HAVE HAD CONTINENTAL GB, CARRYOUT AN ENGINEERS REPORT ON THE TYRES, THEY HAVE CONCLUDED THAT THE WEAR IS DOWN TO THE VEHICLE'S CAMBER. IT LOOKS AS THOUGH THIS SITUATION IS ONE THAT WILL ONLY BE SETTLED IN COURT, AND I'M WILLING TO GO TO COURT. HAS ANYONE BOUGHT A NEW VITARA LATELY, IF SO GET THE DEALERSHIP TO GIVE YOU A 4 WHEEL ALIGNMENT REPORT ,AND START TO CHECK THE REAR TYRE WEAR.
