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 "airbag is disabled" light keeps coming on our 2009 Suzuki SX4 crossover. We are told that this means the airbags are not functioning. The dealers have worked on it three times and the unit is supposed to be fixed. It just came on again for the 4th time. It was last repaired March 17, 2010.

In November 2009, air bag error light came on and I took it to the dealership and the computer was reset. In December 2009, I was in an accident with a deer going 55 mph head on and the air bags did not deploy, which was noted on the accident report. After receiving the vehicle back after repairs were made with oem parts, the air bag error light came on again and I took it back to the dealer, who then reset the computer again. I am concerned.

The contact has continuously experienced failures with the air bag system and has had the computer system reset multiple times. The manufacturer has not offered any resolutions for the failures.
