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.

From day one, my engine light has come on and I have been dealing with different issues ie, it's the gas cap, the man who sold me the car, (the dealer) took the car to the dealership to be repaired, so much, then he took off, and left Massachusetts after selling me a lemon. Etc. How many gas caps do I have to buy? now at year 2014, the engine and transmission has been replaced, the engine belt snapped, the transmission is acting up, (in July of 2010), and the sensor has gone completely wild, ie, comes on and goes off steadily, had that repaired, and when I drive the engine light still comes on and goes off, off, and on, and now the air bag light steadily does the same, after having it repaired twice. The website www.topix.com/forum/city/florence/al has hundreds of complaints on all of the Suzuki vehicles from 2005-2012. How many complaints do you have to have in order to do something about these Suzuki vehicles? I don't think it's fair to have to pay for these kind of repairs, still making car notes, on this car, and I have to have top notch insurance. I would like to know what someone is going to do about these vehicles. I am hoping it doesn't have to take someone to be killed in order for something to happen for a recall. The warranty was only for 90 days, and though I exercised it. I got the run around because the dealer, and the dealership didn't do the rightful repairs on this vehicle in the time allowed. The fault is on both.

Reno 4-cyl

  • 63,000 miles
I was driving early in the evening and driving in a well lit 15 mph zone just after dusk. People on the sidewalk started pointing at my car. When I turned up the side street I realized I had no headlights! I found out that my high beams still worked and I drove a short distance with the high beams. I had the car checked for fuses, relays, and bulbs by my mechanic. I was told it was in the wiring. I came home and checked the computer and found out that there was a recall for this problem which I was never informed of. This could have resulted in a potential crash! the american Suzuki company will not honor this recall. This car was not sold in Hawaii, but was shipped here from California from the person I bought it from in 2005. Now they want me to pay for it, and I have to find my own ase mechanic that is willing to have instructions faxed to them if they meet the requirements.. on top of that, they are only willing to pay $68....which I am sure will not cover the labor for this procedure. I am on social security and do not have the money to pay for this repair.. what do I do next? I need my headlights fixed! please help!
