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 keep having to stick a key in my shift lock just to get the car out of park and has been occurring for a while now. The part you put the seat belt into when you put it on keeps sticking down so you can't wear a seat belt sometimes and I have had to replace my transmission range sensor about every 3 months since I have had the car which is ridiculous.

We just bought this car in August 2012. Since then my seat belt button turned on and took it to the Suzuki dealer and they fixed it. Also the passenger air bag also and they fixed it. Then took it to the dealer to get the oil changed and they said I had a radiator leak ( I wonder how true was that sometimes) repaired it and it cost $400.... now when I was driving the car check engine light turned on and now it was the gas cap that needed to be replaced!!! wth so we replaced that part. Now after we fix that, guess what also starts happening the car just starts to slow down and again check engine light turns on!!! we take it to get a diagnosis and it gives us P0705 P0700 and that now is the transmission range sensor!!! this is crazy!! hopefully nothing else will go wrong..... I feel that Suzuki should have a recall on this transmission range sensor especially.. as I see...many people are going through this and people should be compensated for the money that we all have wasted and frustration we are all going through.... Suzuki needs to fix this problem...

problem #1

Feb 102008


  • 7,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Suzuki Forenza. Two months after purchasing the vehicle, the contact received a recall notice for the seat belts. The recall repairs were performed, but afterwards the seat belt would not latch for approximately one month. At 7,000 miles, the vehicle speed control became inoperable. At 22,000 miles, the driver's side passenger door latch cracked at the base. As a result, the contact had to roll down the window and open the door from the rear in order to exit the vehicle. The vehicle began pulling to the left while driving between 40-70 mph. An independent mechanic stated that the tire had a hole in it and would be patched. Also, the vehicle needed an alignment and the contact was informed to take it back to the dealer to have the specifications checked when the alignment did not correct the issue. The failure mileage was 7,000 and current mileage was 23,450.
