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.

2004 Suzuki Grand vitara with replacement of multiple safety concerns. Consumer states that a seal on the transmission has been replaced 3 times, the shift cables and numerous seals. She stated they finally had to put in a brand new transmission. After the transmission was replaced, the consumer began hearing a roar from the transmission after reaching 50 mph. The dealer replaced another shift cable. A couple of weeks later, the check engine light illuminated, the ac compressor would come on every few seconds and the vehicle just stopped on the highway. There was a horrible whistling sound coming from the windshield. The consumer stated the vehicle has been in the shop 12-15 times for the same problem.
