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.

The front passenger airbag warning light comes on intermittently. There is a known recall of the 2009 Suzuki SX4 for a problem with the sensor in the right front passenger seat. I bought this car as a used vehicle in December 2013. I have attempted to contact Suzuki motor of America directly by two separate letters to inquire about having the necessary repair made; also I have called three designated dealerships that handle Suzuki warranty repairs in orlando, tampa, and St. Petersburg, fl to inquire about the status of the recall. I have received no response from Suzuki motor of America, and the dealers know nothing about the status of this recall, other than verifying that my vehicle is one of those affected by the recall. I am concerned that, should this vehicle be involved in an accident with a passenger in the front passenger seat, that the airbag will not deploy as it should, thus potentially leading to a serious passenger injury. I would like assistance in getting Suzuki to follow through with the recall repairs for this defect.

Purchased vehicle on 6/29/12. Airbag warning light came on two weeks later. Research indicates that my airbags are now disabled. Authorized Suzuki dealer/repair facility is 125 miles away. On line blogs and this website indicate problems with disconnect in seat sensor embedded within front passenger seat cushion. Suzuki will not cover costs to repair/replace seat cushion. Safety issue seams to be with all Suzuki SX4's. how do we, the consumer, get american Suzuki to recall this airbag issue?
