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.

2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

problem #1

Two more problems with my vehicle, gear shift sticking and unable to shift without jamming it into the correct gear. Two, the air conditioning has a foul odor when you turn the vehicle on all the time. I have taken my vehicle in for both problems. The gear shift first off will pop out of place if hit even in park or when the car in not running and it sticks and has to be jammed into place, I have taken it in and was told could not duplicate problem-never fixed. The air conditioning stinks badly, the odor is offensive, smells like a porta potty or something dead! I have taken it in 2 X for this. They put lysol in the coils and told me it was fixed both times. The second time I was told to spray lysol or bleach in the ledge at the top. This does not help and I still have the problem!
