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.

2011 Suzuki Kizashi Owner Comments

I bought my Suzuki during September 2015. Four months after my purchase the headlights suddenly turned off. The daytime running lights work as well as my high beams. In order for me to drive at night, the high beams are on. My high beams are also not bright enough to be considered high beams. The license plate lights also turned off (the same time). I and a couple others have read the manual and have checked and rechecked fuses. I even replaced the fuses just in case. O'reilly, advance auto, and auto zone have all stated that they would be happy to sell me more headlights, but it would not resolve the problem because it sounded more like and electrical issue and until that is addressed I would more than likely have to replace the headlights more than once within 6 months. I have checked forums and have read that this has happened to several Suzuki Kizashi owners and without resolutions that permanently fix this common problem.

I purchased this vehicle about a year ago. December of 2014 one of my low beam headlights burnt out. Followed by the second burning out a couple of days later. Now I went to a trade school for auto mechanics and know how to replace headlight bulbs as I have done it plenty of times on other vehicles. After replacing both bulbs with oem replacements they worked fine, no issues, just it was a pain in this vehicle to change. After about 2 months one went out again. They were replaced again with higher quality/rated bulbs. Again after about 2 months same issue. I have gone on Suzuki forums and done my research on this issue and have seen many consumers with the same problem. Wondering why this is not a recall since its a sever safety issue while driving at night time. Making it extremely difficult to see pedestrians, animals ect. Please help resolve this issue.

My headlights have gone out either one or sometimes both. Either low beam or day lights. All dealership does is replace the bulb but not fix the problem. This has happened more than a handful of times since 2012. This is frustrating and I hate this car. It sounds to me like an electrical issue but they can't find anything wrong with it.
