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.

2004 Suzuki Verona Owner Comments

problem #15

Jun 012015


  • 74,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Suzuki Verona. The contact stated that the headlights would intermittently fail. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 14V262000 (exterior lighting) and contacted the manufacturer. The manufacturer was under liquidation and was not able to honor the recall repair at a local dealer due to a lack of dealers in the contact's state. The closest dealer to the contact was over 120 miles from his residence. The contact was not comfortable driving the vehicle that far due to the potential risk of a fire erupting in the vehicle from the headlight failure. The manufacturer advised the contact that if he wanted the vehicle repaired, he would have to pay for the recall repair himself. The failure mileage was 74,000.

The vehicle accelerated by itself. The problem first started on 4-13-05. The consumer will not be applying pressure to the fuel pedal and the vehicle will go faster. It was like having the cruise control on. However, the cruise control was off. There have been no accidents of yet. The consumer took vehicle to dealer for repairs multiple times. They have checked the computer, and the throttle cables. They have been unable to fix the problem.

Contact owned a 2004 Suzuki Verona where the engine light was staying on. Consumer took the vehicle to the service dealer about 7-8 times. They replaced the fuel cap, computer, and the oxygen sensor. Consumer inspected the fuel cap and found that the rubber packing on the fuel cap was crooked. Consumer reinstalled the rubber packing on fuel cap and this remedied the problem with the engine light staying on. Consumer did go to the local service dealer and examined a fuel cap for a 2005 Suzuki Verona and found the same assembly of the fuel cap as for fuel cap. The sales consultant of the dealership witnessed the assembly of the fuel cap.
