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.

Consumer's vehicle rearend. Noise coming from the drivetrain. Consumer took vehicle to dealer to be repaired. Dealer could find no problem, consumer took it back to the dealer and the dealer kept the vehicle for a week. Then, dealer said problem was coming from the firewall or the ashtray, the second time, after the vehicle was picked up by the consumer, did not receive paper work, when consumer received paper work it statedthat the rear brakes were rusted.

I purchased a Suzuki Forenza 9/2004. The main reason I purchased it was because of the mpgs. It was sold as 22-28 mpg. I have not received better than 17 mpgs under any conditions!!!! this is not even close. It is also a 4 cylinder. The dealer has been notified, and stated that they are getting a lot of complaints. They stated the government fixes these mpg's-doesn't that mean they are responsible to meet these guidelines. With gas prices what they are, this car is no linger fuel economic.
