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.

2012 Suzuki Kizashi Owner Comments

On August 11, 2014 my vehicle caught fire while I was driving home from work. I had to pull over around the corner from my job because I smelled smoke and saw smoke in my car. I pulled over a local Firestone mechanic shop. I opened up my console because most of the smoke was coming from the console, and when I opened the console I saw fire. I rushed inside the Firestone to get help. The mechanics at the Firestone use a fire extinguisher, and the fire department was called. The fire also started up again underneath my cup holder in the car, and after this happened the battery was disconnected. The fire department said the fire appeared to have started as a result of an electrical problem with the ac power plug. I did not have anything plugged in the cigarette lighter, so how the fire started and why I do not know. I'm very concerned about my safety and the vehicle. I also filled a claim with Suzuki corporation, and they had an inspector come out to inspect the car. The inspector is unable to determined what caused the fire in the car.
