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.

problem #2

Mar 162015


  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Ok I am going to vent. I bought this car brand new from a dealer named Keystone Motors in Montgomeryville PA. When all the numbers were tallied we financed $22000 in the total car loan. The first year no problems, passed inspection with flying colors. Year two the transmission went and after the warranty we paid almost $500 to get it fixed. Every single year it has needed major work. Piece of crap car! It is finally dead now and I guess I will be glad to be rid of this ball and chain car. Only wish I could sue the people who sold me this lemon. DON'T BUY ANY SUZUKIS Learn from my $22000 mistake.

i plan to change the head gasket tomorrow, and sent the head to the machine shop to see if it is not warp!!!

i guess i have been lucky, the transmission sensor has gone out twice and the head gasket will need to be replaced it has been leaking coolant into cylinder number 4 and it causes the check engine to come on the i have to add coolant about every 2 weeks or so
