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

XL7 6-cyl

  • 43,766 miles


I purchased my XL7 new from shortline Suzuki in 2009. It has 43,000 miles on it and it has developed a noise in the steering column, I had the dealership check the issue and was told the steering rack needed replacement, I have driven this vehicle for only 2 years!! this is a defect, not an isolated incident, as many have complained here and in the Suzuki forums. I also have had water leak into the vehicle from the sun roof as reported by another owner. I cannot express how disappointed I am with the quality of this vehicle. I purchased new so I would not have spend time in the shop, yet I have had a myriad of issues.
