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.

The contact owns a 2006 Suzuki Grand vitara. The contact stated while driving at various speeds the front passenger air bag off indicator illuminated whenever a passenger was positioned in the front seat. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they informed the air bag sensor module would need to be replaced. The vehicle had been previously repaired for the similar defect in April of 2000; however the problem recurred. The vehicle was not repaired for the most recent failure. In addition, the headlight low beam bulbs were replaced fifteen different times due to the faulty design of the head lamp socket. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000.

I have a 2006 Suzuki - Grand vitara, my passenger side air bag light stays on. I took it to the Suzuki dealer and they said my passenger side air bag sensor is out and it would cost $2000 for the part only. What do I do?

I purchased a 2nd hand 2006 Suzuki Grand vitara. The light for my air bag lit up on my dashboard. When I took it in for servicing, I was informed that the sensor on the front seat passenger air bag module was defective and needed to be replaced. As I conducted my research with the mainland Suzuki office and the local dealership, it was presented to me that many, many vehicles of the same was brought it for the same problem. I was not in any accident but was responsible in paying a little over $2,000 out of my pocket. Apparently the "black listed" extended warranty that was provided to me at the time of sale, does not cover restraints. I am upset that the manufacturer of this car does not want to take responsibility, and for 2nd hand buyers - we are made financially responsible for paying for the repairs. I am upset on top of being financially drained and would like to know how to proceed in filing a class action law suit. Can you respectfully respond as I was informed that there is a federal supplemental warranty that covers restraints in place?
