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.

2003 Suzuki Aerio Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 60,000 miles


2003 Suzuki Aerio cv joint keeps coming out due to snap ring in rear end, car is under warranty. Car dealer will not honor warranty, says rear axle is a after market part, this is not true, why would we have car worked on when under warranty, we are third owner of car and know the two previous owners which is a father and son, they are adamant no work has been done on this car, they would have taken the car to get fixed since it is still under warranty, its very easy for the mechanic to get some rear end axle and say it came out of my car, just to avoid fixing my car, their claim is if someone else worked on this car that voids the warranty, so this is their convenient way of getting out of fixing my car.

Aerio 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles
At approx. 23,000 miles front right wheel bearing failed. With in 20 miles after repair failed again, and has done so for the next five wheel bearings. The dealer & or Suzuki represenitives don't not know what to do with this situation, on this 2003 Suzuki. This car is still under warranty I feel they are stalling hoping to ware me down.
