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.

2007 Suzuki XL7 Owner Comments

The airbag would not turn on regardless of the weight in the passenger seat. When inquired with dealer, we were told there wasn't enough weight even though it ranged from 120- 250. Then the air bag indicator came on and the air bag on/off passenger light is always on off, the airbag on/off light never goes on. Now the dealer is telling us we need to replace the pad in the passenger seat...probably, they can't be certain until it's been changed at a fee of $800. This seems to be a constant issue for this vehicle and the plant that it was made in. The XL7 and other GM cars with same body frame have the same problem except the XL7 is not being recalled. Why not" I fear it's because the XL7 has had a smaller production than other GM cars and now with Suzuki no longer in production, we owners have no one to investigate and initiate a recall - isn't this where/when the government should be stepping up" this cannot be meeting mandatory safety standards. My research shows these vehicles were effected in addition to the XL7:GMC/acadia 2007, Saturn/outlook 2007 manufacturer: General Motors Corp. NHTSA campaign id number: 07V062000 mfg's report date: February 21, 2007 component: Air bags: Frontal: Sensor/control module summary: On certain vehicles, the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM), which controls the function of front air bags, may not operate properly. As a result, the front air bags may fail to deploy in a frontal crash. Also, the air bag warning lamp on the instrument panel may fail to provide warning that the system is inoperative. Consequence: N the event of a crash, this condition could increase the risk of injury to occupants in the front seat. Remedy: Dealers will reprogram the SDM computer module. Why is the XL7 not included in this recall/ repair/ reprogram?

XL7 6-cyl

  • 62,241 miles
On February 4, 2011, I was driving between 10-15mph on a very rough road due to the city of tulsa not clearing the roads after 12 inches of snow. All of the sudden all side air bags went off. That day I drove it to the dealership. I did not get it back until April 23, 2011. I was giving every excuse in the book on about every day on why it was taking so long to get fixed. An insurance check was issued to the repair shop February 18th. The parts were not ordered until around the 28th. I was told they could not find the seat belts and I was asked to try to find some online. Once I provided two sites to the repair shop they claimed they can only order from Suzuki. My wife informed the dealership she was going to report this to the local media outlet. All of the sudden seat belts appeared 1000 miles away. They even argued about having to get them. The insurance company (farmers) wants a recall on the rollover sensor, and requested the repair shop to contact Suzuki. The repair shop want me to do this. I had to pay for the sensor being farmers thinks it is defective. $447.49 total bill $5766.73.
