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

Grand Vitara 4WD 6-cyl

  • 54,000 miles


The vehicle will not stay in alignment. It is wearing the back tires down to nothing really fast and making loud roaring noises. When driving it throws you all over the road making it very possible to hit on coming traffic. This vehicle does not feel safe to drive. I have parked it and will not be driving until something is done about this.

Grand Vitara

  • miles
Within 2 months of buying my new 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara, noticed excessive tire wire and alignment problems. When replacing tires, rear tires are worn to threads and cords within 2-3 months time of being put on, front tires are worn on the inside, extreme instability in handling the vehicle on wet and dry roads, front end vibration, documentation providing fact that my 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara is not able to be properly aligned and brought into spec., front camber eccentric bolts that should of been installed by the manufacture are missing, tires always smell like they are burning, vehicle has been aligned 3 times but is not able to stay aligned. The last alignment and new set of 4 tires was done on 9/7/2009 and is when the missing front eccentric bolts and nut on the right rear a arm was discovered. This is also when it was discovered that my 2008 Suzuki Grand vitara was not able to be properly aligned are brought into spec. This is a severe safety hazard to have my vehicle on the road. With an alignment and excessive tire wear problem, crossing the threshold into loss of control is a very high risk for me.
