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, rear tires are going bald within 12000-15000 miles, crazy thing is that it is only happening to the rear tires...I just went and got my third set of tires this afternoon since having this 2006 Suzuki Grand vitara. I guess I better start filling up my piggi bank for the next set of tires in 12000-15000 miles, that is unless Suzuki Corp. Admits that this car is defective.

On February,1st, 2009, the left rear suspension knuckle broke while driving on interstate 10 going East near vidor, Texas. While going ~ 60 M/hr. Lost control of the car and it was spinning on the freeway(2 lanes, construction zone).the car also had some minor damage to left front and rear right bumper due to rubbing against the freeway divider. All 4 tires were intact, no blow outs. The car was towed to a Suzuki dealer in houston (dmontrond Suzuki 281-872-0934). My insurance company adjuster decided to total the car on 2/6/09. I contacted Suzuki corporation at 800-934-0934 talked to orlando. Orlando indicated that there was no recall on my car and all he can do is to get information and give me a case number, I gave him the same details in this letter and the case number he gave me is 2-183409403. I did not hear from Suzuki since I filed the complain on 2/6/09.

I purchased my Suzuki Grand vitara in 2006 brand new. Within 15K miles, the tires were worn out, so I took it in and they told me they would put 2 new tires on it, if I purchased and alignment, which I did. Now at 33K miles, my tires are worn out again and they said they had changed the specs on Suzuki's alignments, so now my alignment is out due to old specs. They did offer to put 2 new tires and align it if we purchased 2 more tires @ $380. I told them I could get tires cheaper than that and they pulled the offer. No matter what happens, as long as the alignment is out, it will continue to eat my tires off. It is very unfair that I have to get an attorney to get Suzuki to fix my car that is under warranty. I know the tires are not under warranty, but the alignment is!!!
