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.

2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

I am writing about the seat belts in my 2002 Suzuki Grand vitara. The passenger seat belt frequently locks up and doesn't allow the person wearing it to move. I find it very annoying and potentially unsafe as whoever is in that seat usually ends up unbuckling it and not putting it back on. This also happens in the rear seats, although it isn't as much of a problem as I generally don't have rear passengers. I also have a problem with both front belts not retracting fully when we exit the vehicle, I checked with the dealer, but replacing the retractor was quite expensive and I feel this is a defect as seat belts should last longer then a few years.
