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

2003 Suzuki Aerio, vehicle will not go into reverse after the vehicle has been parked unless the consumer pulls vehicle forward first, this problem occurs all the time, consumer took vehicle to the dealer directly after purchasing the vehicle. Dealer said the cable busted. Then the dealer changed a cable cord. This still did not fix the problem. To dealer, consumer took the vehicle a second time, and dealer changed out the gear box, this still did not fix the problem. The third time the dealer said they could not find the cause of the problem, vehicle is still under warranty.
