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.

2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

Grand Vitara

  • 44,905 miles


My rear brakes are making a loud noice like metal against metal. I had the brakes checked at several places, including a Suzuki dealership (wright Suzuki) in addition to Firestone and Mr. Tire. All three said my rear brakes are in excellent condition as well as the front. I also reported that the brake pedal seems to go down a little further than what I precive as normal (compared to other vehicles). This started about 6 months ago and I just had them checked again on 8/28/10 at Mr. Tire again, and nothing is wrong. When I took my car to wright Suzuki to have another recall on the same vechicle certified that I had the work done earlier, another Suzuki Grand vitara like mine was pulling into the service bay and it's rear brakes were making the same noice as mine. I spoke to the owner and he said his started about 2 weeks earlier and he too noticed his brake peddle going down further than it had before. Now I only have mine and the other Suzuki owner with this problem, I am filing a complaint to see if others have had the same issue. I'm afraid my brakes may fail when I need them most. I'm trying to have something done but no one can find the problem.
