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.

problem #4

Aerio 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Suzuki Aerio. The contact placed brand new rear tires on the vehicle because the alignment failed at 14,000 miles. The dealer stated that the tire failure was caused by the factory improperly aligning the vehicle's rear end. Currently, the contact needs to have the front tires and bushings replaced for the same failure. The engine size was unknown. The current mileage is 18,000 and failure mileage was 14,000. The consumer provided copies of the repair invoices. The dealer stated the vehicle passenger and driver mirrors are loose, tail light has moisture, windshields leak, tires are knotted and click, passenger has to hold seatbelt, and popping noise when brakes are applied.

Aerio 4-cyl

My rear alignment is off so in October of 2005 I took it in to get fixed as my rear tires appeared to be wearing at an unusual rate and pattern. Problem was said to be in some Suzuki Aerio's but was said to be fixed. The specs were off and had to be reset and rear tires warranted. On January 5th I took car in to get oil changed and rotation of tires. They would not rotate as back tires were worn and they told me to take it back where I got it fixed the previous time. On January 20th rear alignment fixed again and this time they had to bend something (a strut ?) in order to get the specs right on the car. I went off the road when I returned home and went into a ditch. No damage. Then on January 31th new tires put on the front and old ones rotated to the back. The old ones were from October and were in excellent condition per Suzuki dealership. The tires are again worn to the point of unsafe. I can not drive on dry roads without having a problem. This has become a safety defect and the only way to correct it is for me to buy new tires every month. The tires worn down completely from excellent to should not be driving on them in 2,000 miles and just over a month.

Aerio 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,670 miles
I had the tires inspected less than 3 weeks ago when I had my oil changed. No major tread wear and they passed site inspection. I was exiting a construction zone going 35 mph when the rear drivers side tire blew out. By the time I was able to safely leave the road there was nothing left of the tire and I was driving on the rim. On inspection after tire was changed the passenger side rear tire was completely bald also and down to the threads
