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.
