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.

2006 Suzuki Aerio Owner Comments

Aerio 4-cyl

About 1-1-1/2 months ago a squeal developed on the right side of the engine of our 2006 Suzuki - currently at 29,000+ miles. My husband took the vehicle to the dealer who sold us the car and an examination was done. The mechanic said the serpentine belt was glazed and that it was not under warranty. He said the belt could be tightened by removing a panel. If it was the pulley that was defective it would be replaced and we could buy the belts at that time from the dealer for replacement. He indicated to my husband that it would be about $155-$165 to have the belts replaced. When asked what other customers did, he said they had the belts replaced or they just "lived with" the squealing. I have frankly never had a car that has had belt issues, and clearly this has happened to other customers, so young in the mileage life of my vehicle.
