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.

2007 Suzuki XL7 Owner Comments

problem #1

XL7 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Check engine light came on and dealer said that it was a defective camshaft. Work on engine consisted of changing camshaft and rocker arms. Dealer said that he has seen this problem on a few other 2007 Suzuki Xl7S. The problem is rust on the interior of the engine caused by the manner in which they are shipped across Canada. Apparently, a valve cover is left off so a bar code can be viewed while in Transport. This may be a serious problem if the vehicle suddenly loses power and turns off due to rust.
