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.

2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner Comments

Esp light came on, brought truck to dealer, they say it has a bad hydraulic brake unit at the cost of $1200, Suzuki won't fix it even though their is only 15101mi on vehicle. Mouse infestation due to poor design of cabin body vents located behind rear bumper cover. There are no grills in place over these vents to keep rodents out, they infested the truck and headliner area urinating all over the curtain air bags and compromised them, I called Suzuki and basically was told I'm the only one in the world this happened to and basically did nothing, $4000 in damage.
