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.

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

  • 100 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara. The contact's vehicle has an esp system and the button read, "push esp off". the salesman stated that once the button is pushed off, the indicator will go away. The indicator activates while driving 20 mph and over and cannot be stopped. Dot NHTSA number 2006-25801rin2127-aj7749cfr, parts 571, and 585 Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards were referenced. The electronic stability control system recommends that there should be an override mechanism. The contact was informed that if the esp system does not shut off, it can become a safety issue. The manufacturer stated that nothing could be done because they were in compliance. The failure mileage was 100. The consumer stated the esp button has no override button. The esp button manipulates the major controls of the vehicle such as maintaining traction and skid control. Updated 03/11/09.
