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.

As others have related the air bag warning light(s) has appeared on my car also now. As others have written theirs was mainly the driver seat sensors failing. The minor difference of my issue is that both seats air bag warning lights came on and will not go away at the same time. This fact does add up to the sensors in each seat failing at exactly the same time. Suzuki repair departments are claiming individual seat sensor issues. Something else is wrong here and this should become a defect investigation before someone dies due to the air bags not deploying.

Upon start-up the air bag indicator light and the passenger seat belt light are on persistently. This is whether or not someone is seated in the passenger seat. According to an on-line query, we found multiple entries (complaints) of other customers experiencing the same problem for 2007, 2008 and 2009 models. The culprit is a faulty sensor in the seat cushion. Thus far Suzuki has not addressed this issue, nor do they feel it is a safety concern. From what the dealership service manager indicated (and as stated on complaints we found) with the car in the current condition, our air bags will not deploy in the event of an accident. The dealership stated the estimate for repair of the seat cushion and seat belt assembly is $1700. The dealership compared this repair to that of say an engine or transmission going out. They (both the dealership personnel and Suzuki Corp. Customer service personnel) say it is fair to expect to pay for such repairs, after the warranty period. We feel this is a faulty component. We feel that it is wrong of Suzuki to expect car owners to pay for such repairs. We believe that this non-value added feature, now defective, is jeopardizing our lives. Since when did replacing seat cushions and seat belt assemblies become standard car repairs" since when is a faulty component that essentially disables the entire air-bag system deemed to be a simple repair issue and not a safety concern" we fail to see how this is the case. We fail to see how Suzuki can justify such statements.

2007 Suzuki SX4: Naguabo, pr. Air bag light and front passenger sensing system indicators stay on. Took to dealer, computer reset done. Lasted only 4 days, air bag sys fault lights on again. Taken back to dealer, service dept said the front passenger seat air bag sensor was faulty. Mileage 54,442 not covered under warranty. Over $2,000 to fix issue. This must be a factory defect that somehow appears after your warranty expires. This is a safety issue.
