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.

Received a recall notice from Suzuki. Took it to the dealer for repairs. They said they don't have the repair parts, never had the repair parts and don't know when they might get the repair parts. They said that there is no one to call at Suzuki since they have exited the us market.

Started to have a loud squeal come out of the right side of the car. Took it to dealership and they diagnosed as the axle. It has been almost two-months and they have yet to get in an axle since there are none available throughout the world. They said there must be an issue with the axles since there is none available and they have not been able to get one.
