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.

2005 Suzuki Reno Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 132006

Reno 2-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,627 miles


I got my car in may, 2006. It was brand new when I bought it, but it was in the shop only six days after. I began to notice that my car would jerk when it was shifting gears (although it was an automatic). Over about a week's time, it got much worse and I had to bring it in for repairs. I was told that the transmission had not been updated. I brought it back three more times with the same problem. The 4th time I brought it back, it was so bad that not only was it jerking while shifting, but while staying at a steady speed as well. Finally, my check engine light came on because my transmission was bad. At the same time, my passengers side airbag sensor was not working. I would sit in the seat and the light would come on saying "passengers airbag off." I brought it back more than 4 times for both the airbag and transmission. Sometimes, I would be told they "could not duplicate the concern" and therefore, they could not fix it. Other times, I would be told my car had been updated and fixed and that I should not have any other problems. After only 5 months of owning the car, I had to file a lemon law application. Neither my transmission or my airbag have been fixed, and I am currently driving a car with a bad transmission and no passengers side airbag.
