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.

Grand Vitara 6-cyl

2006 Suzuki Grand vitara with several problems. Consumer states that the problems are: Steering shaft, engine making a knocking noise, engine light illumination, gasoline odor from engine and seat warmer not working. The engine noise was due to the camshaft timing belt which needed to be re-torqued. The purge valve was replaced due to the engine light being on.

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

This happened day after we bought vehicle. Valve tapping coming from motor at idle. Rattling noise from engine at 50 mph. Passenger heated seat works 10% of the time. Took vehicle to dealership gave back in one hour. The help ticket states need to order part to heat seat and they need to call tech support to resolve tapping. I took SUV two weeks ago I call every other day. They say they are still waiting for tech support and they want to fix both problems at once. Are they waiting until the motor has serious damage before moving on to fix it?
