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.

Aerio 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Air intake and computer chips placed very low within 12" from the ground. The streets were flooded. The intake sucked water up into my engine and caused my car to instantly stall. If anyone had been behind me, I could have been hit. I didn't even have time to put my brakes on.

The contact owns a 2006 Suzuki Aerio. While driving 25 mph on a rainy day, the vehicle shut off when it drove over a puddle. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that the failure was caused by water intrusion. They further stated that the rod failed and went through the aluminum motor. Both times the rod went through the motor, the water intrusion was caused by the air brether positioned under the motor. The powertrain was unknown. The current mileage was 10,000 and failure mileage was 9,000. Updated 10/16/07
