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.

While driving at appox 5mph turning into a parking lot the passenger side seat airbag and curtain airbag deployed. There was no one sitting in the passenger seat nor was there any weight on the seat. Car has appox 33K miles on it and has never been in an accident. I am waiting on word from Suzuki as to what they will or will not do. Driver side seatbelt also locked in place once released and cannot be retracted.

Received a vehicle recall notice--13V405000. That here was a defective air bag seat switch. I called the dealer and was told to wait for a second letter, called Suzuki and was given the same run around. How long does it take. If this switch fails the air bag will not work and someone could be injuried.this is going on six months now. The car is listed under my wife's name.

The contact owns a 2010 Suzuki sx-4. the contact stated that while driving approximately 65 mph, she heard a loud noise and the steering wheel locked up. The contact was unable to pull to the right, so she abruptly engaged the brakes causing njuries to her back. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that tensioner had fractured and needed to be replaced. The mechanic was unable to do the repairs and advised her to contact the dealer. The vehicle was towed dealer where the vehicle was repaired under NHTSA campaign id number 11V055000 (electrical system: Alternator/generator/regulator). In addition, the contact was informed that her air bag light was on and they would have to diagnose the failure before doing any repairs. The contact did not approve the diagnosis since it would be at her expense. The failure and current mileage was approximately 5,050.
