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.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

Rear door trim has peeled back and snapped off. Dealer replaced it under warranty, three months later it is snapped off again. Both sides have been replaced and both sides have broken again. Dealer is slow in ordering and receiving replacement parts, even slower scheduling a time to repair. Dealer felt that "taping it down with black tape was sufficient until the parts come in." It has been over six months since the passenger rear trim has been ordered. Meanwhile, I am driving around in a brand new vehicle with black electrical tape holding down the trim.
