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.

2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

My wife had just stepped out of the vehicle after putting the keys in the ignition and walked inside to grab something from her parent's house. When she returned the doors had automatically locked her out, she had to call a friend to bring an extra key. Luckily she didn't have our daughter with her or she would have been locked inside. We just figured it was an automatic anti-theft program, but didn't realize others were having problems. From now on, we just make sure we have the keys on us, or roll the window if the vehicle is still running when you step out of it even just for a second.
