Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The exhaust system, specifically the resonator canister on the tail pipe, corroded through forming a hole. This allowed exhaust gasses to exit under the vehicle. The exhaust leak could have resulted in carbon monoxide entering the passenger compartment and causing illness, injury or death. The corrosion results from a design defect that allows exhaust condensate to pool in the resonator and corrode the metal. This is the second new exhaust system replaced within 14 months and 10,000 miles. This defect was observed on every single Chevy Tracker and Suzuki vitara model years 1999 to 2003. The exhaust system was replaced under warranty.
