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.

2009 Suzuki SX4 Owner Comments

problem #3

SX4 4-cyl

  • 70,388 miles


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?

This issue started way before today, but the air bag sensor light came on probably in the fall of 2011 along with the passenger seat belt light. We moved to a small town and before getting two new tires we went to the service station only to find out it was closed but I need to get my inspection reinstated so I can go to class and work and if Suzuki knew about all these issues with the air bag sensor one would hope that it would warrant a recall. I love my SX4 but ever since I got it has had many issues with it, more so than my husbands car which is a 1999 Ford mustang.

Vehicle # 1 will be the one we have a complaint about. Vehicle # 2 is the other involved party. Vehicle # 2 ran a red light and was T-boned by vehicle # 1. vehicle # 1 is equipped with front, passenger, side, and two other kinds of airbags. No airbags deployed. Front drivers seatbelt did not "catch", resulting in driver hitting chest on steering wheel.
