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.

The clock spring in the steering column of my vehicle makes a terrible sound when it is turned at low speeds. I brought it in for repair under the warranty and Suzuki replaced it. The replaced part continued to make the same sound so I brought it in again. The dealership stated that Suzuki would not authorize a new part, only that they needed to "lube the hell out of it." The lubing has not fixed the problem. This is an issue that Suzuki will not, or cannot fix. It is a sub-par product that needs a repair, not a band-aide.
