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

problem #1

Nov 012006

Grand Vitara 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


There is an issue with mine and many other 2006 Suzuki Grand vitara models where the rear alignment is way out of specification causing the rear tires to go bald within 10,000 miles. Suzuki is aware of the issue that I am having, they have already corrected the alignment, however they refuse to replace the bad tires. The tires only have tread left on the inside edges indicating a scrubbing situation. I feel that the tires are very unsafe, and I now cannot drive a vehicle that is just over a year old.
