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 contact owns a 2006 Suzuki Forenza. Whenever the contact removed his foot from the brake pedal, the rear brake lights remained illuminated, even when his foot was not depressing the brake pedal. The dealer stated that the failure was not included under warranty. The contact feels that this is a hazard that should be covered in the warranty. The failure mileage was 59,000 and current mileage was 60,000.

: the contact stated on three separate occasions, the vehicle would not start in the morning without the accelerator pedal being pressed. The dealership was unable to determine the problem but believed it may have been a software problem that was aggravated by the climate updated 6/16/2006 - the dealer took the car back nd gave the consumer full credit towards another vehicle.
