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.

2005 Suzuki Verona Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 062009


  • 80,000 miles


I rear ended a completely stopped vehicle doing approximately 45mph. My head hit the steering wheel and then the windshield causing me to suffer a laceration of my eye, multiple facial bruising, concussion, temporarily knocked out, when I woke up I was paralyzed from the waist up for approximately 15 minutes. My air bags did not deploy. This crash is as frontal of a crash as you can get and I assure you the speed was 40-45 and that the collision was severe.. the Suzuki manual says airbags will deploy on frontal or near frontal collisions at 9mph -- 13mpg if you hit something that wont move, but if you hit a parked car the airbags require you to be slightly over that for air bag deployment. I researched this and Suzuki recalled 5 models in 2005 for defective airbags, 2 models in another country were recalled due to faulty airbags. The (2004) Verona failed its crash test due to faulty airbags. It is my contention that due to horrifically low sales of this model, Suzuki felt that it would be cheaper to litigated accidents then to recall this vehicle. So in this instance they will have their chance to litigate!!
