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.

I have 44,000 miles on my 2006 Suzuki Forenza - only 5 years old and the struts are gone! the front end of my car bounces like its on a trampoline! this should not be happening at 5 years old. Suzuki needs to make good on their bad struts on this car. I have seen lots of people complaining.. one of them at 21,000 miles.. and this hasn't been recalled" what gives" also, I can't lock my car from the outside anymore. The airbag light is always on saying its not working. This car has lots of problems and I just bought it a year ago and ready to get rid of it and buy something else. Definitely not a Suzuki ever again.

2006 Suzuki Forenza which I bought in February 2008. The interior handle on the passenger and driver side broke off within 4 months of each other a year after I had the vehicle. Normal use of handles (trying to exit vehicle). Never experienced anything like that. After reading through your complaints, I see others have the same problem. I went to dealer who had no information about a recall. He informed me of the cost of $120+ to repair the two plus the cost of the handles.

The inside door handles on the 2006 Suzuki Forenza are made of cheap plastic and defective. The passenger side broke off and then the one on the back door broke off. I took my car into a dealer for the seat belt recall and was never advise at that time they could replace the handles if I was still within my mileage for my warranty which at the time I was. Another Suzuki owner had the same issue so we called the dealer and was advised yes we're aware of that problem but can only replace them for free if you vehicle is still under warranty!! if not there is a $50 labor charge per door plus the handle cost. Suzuki hasn't listed this issue as a recall. Upon doing more research I found a website with numerous complaints in reference to the plastic door handles breaking off. Now on the 2007 Suzuki Forenza they use chrome handles.. hmmm wonder why" I feel cheated, if Suzuki is aware that this could cause someone harm in the event of an accident and the consumer has to roll down there window to open the door couldn't that be a potential law suit" I'm in hopes someone of authority can look into this and have this listed as a recall, it is unfair to all who own a 2006 Forenza to have to pay for a mistake they made trying to cut cost on the assembly line.
