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.

Ever since I bought my 2005 Suzuki Forenza wagon, I have had problems with it starting. I would turn the key and the engine would sound like it was going to start, but I would then have to turn the all the way to the off position to restart and then it would finally turn over. I have brought my car in three different times to the dealership where I purchased it and they say nothing is wrong with it. Obviously there is. They try to say it is from the cold or something else and they claim they "have done all they can do and that nothing is wrong with it." It has had this problem in summer, fall, winter, and spring. It even happened in AZ in September when it was 110 degrees. My warranty is up in June and I need to have this corrected before then. I also maintain my car very well, so that isn't the problem either.
