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.

2007 Suzuki Forenza Owner Comments

I had defective plastic door knobs that broke and replaced with the same type door knob by the dealer and charged me labor. Replaced strut mounts within the last 9 months I have replaced: Transmission, water pump, the valve cover gasket 4 times, the valve cover, the radiator, the timing belt, the ac compressor, front axles, wheel bearings, lower intake manifold hose, and it is still leaking antifreeze. The car seem to be very hot and the key is very very hot in the ignition. I also need to replace the fuel assembly........ I definitely would like to be included in a class action lawsuit or I will do my own. This is not fair to the consumer to pay all this money into keeping this car repaired. I've invested more into this car than what it is worth. Please advise.

I have a 2007 Suzuki Forenza and the check engine light just came on. I took it to auto zone and they put it on the tester and it came up with a trans range sensor.this is a dealer part and the car only has about 75,000 miles on it. From what I can see online is that alot of people have had this issue. I have replaced 3 of the 4 door handles as well.

The contact owns a 2007 Suzuki Forenza. When the ignition was turned on, the air bag warning indicator would illuminate on the instrument panel. The warning indicator remained lit until the engine was turned off. The front and driver side interior door handles failed without warning. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing, but they could not determine the cause of the failures. The driver and passenger side air bag harness and door handles were replaced under the service warranty. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on a separate occasion for identical failures. In addition, the bolts from the radiator fan were loose and some were missing. Currently, the parts for the repair are unavailable and have been ordered. The failure mileage was 12,000 and current mileage was 17,000. Updated 3/25/09 updated 03/25/09.
