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.

I did not buy a car to have it fall apart!!!!!! I have to open the passanger front door inorder to open the back passanger door or the molding continues to buckel and tear loose. You would think they would get it right!!!

The first time the molding on the rear driver side door peeled of was 4 months after I bought it. It was covered under warranty. The second time it happened was about a year to a year & 1/2 later and by then the warranty was expired. This time it happened on both rear door moldings. The problem is caused by opening the rear doors when the front doors are closed. Seems like I should be able to open my rear doors, especially being the parent of 2 small children who HAVE to ride in the back seat. Anyway, I asked Suzuki for a good-will repair and they said no. I am not happy and I am looking for people who have had the same problem because I want to fight their decision.
