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.

Dashboard airbag warning light comes on and stays on. Dealer reset it twice, still on, meaning airbag is not functional. Dealer wants to start repair by replacing wiring harness in seat, then the airbag module, if that doesn't work. Claims vehicle is out of warranty for this work. I believe it is a safety issue that shoudl be addressed by manufacturer. Please advise. Thanks,

The contact owns a 2013 Suzuki SX4. While making a left turn at 15 mph, another vehicle crashed into the contact's vehicle. The air bags failed to deploy. There were no injuries and a police report was not filed. The vehicle was towed to a mechanic and was diagnosed as a write off. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 33,000.

We purchased the car in January of 2013 and I noticed this issue right away. The front passenger seat airbag light indicates that the airbag is not on when I sit on the front passenger seat. I brought the car to several dealers that service Suzuki, but they say all the codes come back as normal. When anyone else but me sits on that seat, the airbag is on. I weigh 110 pounds. Everyone else who has sat on that seat has weighed more than 110 pounds.the last dealer I brought the car to called Suzuki and they told the mechanic there was no way to tweak the minimum weight of the sensor. I called Suzuki customer service several times. All they could do is record my complaint. They said all sensors for all Sx4S are exactly the same and they can't be tweaked. They wouldn't let me talk to a supervisor/manager or an engineer. I want the senor changed, if the weight range can't be lowered. They need to put in a new sensor with lower starting weight for engaging the airbag. There is no way I am the only one in the us who is experiencing this issue. What if a child, a teenager or a pregnant woman sits in the front passenger seat in a Suzuki SX4" they are waiting for someone to die so their family can file a lawsuit against Suzuki and then they will start recalling these vehicles"!
