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.

2005 Suzuki Forenza. Consumer writes in regards to malfunction of vehicle driving lights. The consumer stated she received a recall notice in September 2012 and responded immediately by calling the department with her information regarding the expensive repair bill from January 2012, when the said recall had in fact disabled the driving lights on her vehicle. The consumer submitted all of the required paperwork to be reviewed for reimbursement. The beginning of January was her first experience with the driving lights shutting off, while driving in the dark at 60 mph. Within 10 to 15 minutes the lights came back on, but a few minutes later they shut off again. The consumer had various individuals check for a loose connection to the lights, but no one could find anything, because the problem was hidden within the dashboard. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, where they diagnosed the problem as a melted splice pack. The customer relations contacted the consumer and informed her the problem she experienced back in January did pertain to the recall and out of the $513.60 bill, should would only receive $75. The representative stated the mechanic was not aware of the problem and had to spend time diagnosing the issue which took him four hours. She then informed the consumer that with the information from the recall notice, the same repair could have been fixed in less than an hour, which was the amount that would be refunded.

The first time I had a problem was with the automatic lights, they would come on when they wanted to after two months of buying the car. I did not do nothing about that, then I was driving and went to turn on my high beams and the lights went out all together no lights what's so ever, but then messed with switch and they came back on. Then just the other day I was leaving a friends house and I had high beams but no regular headlights.

I have a 2005 Suzuki Forenza. I purchased the vehicle used. I have no daytime running lights and I have no low beam headlights. I have to drive with my high beams on. I have been searching online and have found a Suzuki forum and in the forum many people have indicated that this headlight problem is a known problem. I do find a complaint here where a single mom has a similar problem and Suzuki refuses to fix it. I can't find any recalls for this problem. Isn't the manufacturer responsible for manufacturer defects" can someone please help me"

Having trouble with my 2005 Suzuki Forenza and was wondering if your site could assist me. I took it back for numerous occasions for air bag sensor, headlight failure, key not being able to come out of ignition, and unable to move gearshift out of park without putting a key in console gearshift.dealership wants to charge me for labor. I am a single mother and I need advise on what I should do.they don't want to let me trade it in without $3,000. I think its wrong to do something like taking advantage of people.I have to drive 60 miles to the dealership and gas is three dollars a gallon.I'm fed up and any help in this matter would be appreciated thank you angela young
