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

problem #2

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

  • 30,382 miles


When I first bought the 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara, I noticed that the low beam headlights were so low that I could not see the road. I literally cannot see the road because they are so dim-they keep blowing out and needing to be replaced as well. I have to drive with my high beam lights on at night because I am afraid I will hit someone or something. I am blinded by on coming traffic if I drive with these on. This is a great safety hazard-these lights should be recalled before someone gets killed. I got my sixteen Y/O daughter this car and I refuse to let her drive it- I drive it. Been to dealership many times-still not any better. Please help.

I have just entered the mileage of the last time this problem happened. My 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara keeps blowing the headlamp bulbs. I have replaced it more than 10 times which is obviously abnormal since most of the cars uses the same bulb even for years. As I can see in internet forums this is a common problem between Suzuki owners and Suzuki has done nothing to correct this problem. I consider this a safety issue. Please help.
