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.

2002 Suzuki Aerio Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 022003

Aerio 4-cyl

  • 8,004 miles


When braking there is a grinding and or popping noise. Also, the brake pedal feels softer than normal. Vehicle has been serviced 4 times for this issue, but the cause of the noise has not been determined. The consumer noticed a popping noise in the front end and pulsation in the brakes and steering wheel. Suzuki admitted that there was a problem but they weren't sure of how to resolve. The emergency brake light would come when traveling at certain angles both on and off ramp.
