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.

Excessive tire wear on 2006 Suzuki Grand vitara. I have had to replace my tires on my vehicle four times in three years and all Suzuki will say is it is an alignment problem and a wear problem and they are not responsible for it. I have spent more money on tires in the last three years for this vehicle than I can afford. And my tires keep going bald within 12K miles or less and I have put three different types of tires on the vehicle. There are several blogs about this problem but Suzuki refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem with the vehicle and not the tires. How many times does it take to rotate tires and get alignments on a normal working vehicle it should not have tires wearing out to bald and threadbare before a 3K mile rotation is done on them. Vehicle also skids on wet roads and alignments keep going out on vehicle and cannot be adjusted any more. Also if vehicle is not driven for a few days brakes squeal when first starting to drive vehicle. Mechanics said brakes are fine but continue to have this problem. Please look into this problem and help us folks that can't afford to keep replacing tires every time we turn around.

I was on a major highway when I lost all gears on my car. I started to roll back. I am also going on my fourth set of tires on this car. The dealership seems to think this is normal.
