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.

2004 Suzuki Forenza Owner Comments

I am not sure if this is really a defect or not, but my airbags did not deploy upon impact. My car was legally parked on the street when it was totaled by a drunk driver going 70 mph in a head-on collision. Some have told me that they did not deploy because the key was not in the ignition, but others (including the body shop owner) claim that I had a faulty airbag sensor on my car. If this is a defect, I want the Suzuki manufacturer to know about it so that no one will get hurt. If not, just disregard this message. I feel strongly that this could have been a manufacturing glitch. My new car had many assembly line glitches when I bought it new in July of this year. For instance, the brake light would constantly switch on and off even when my foot was nowhere near the brake or if the car was parked and turned off. Also, a few days after the purchase of this vehicle, the alignment was so bad that I almost flew off the freeway into a concrete guard rail. These problems were all safety issues. They bothered me so much that I doubt I will ever buy another Suzuki again.
