Sue, I am glad you are able to post. Heal up before jumping back on the horse.
I tried to start a campaign to get those cheap and in my opinion DEADLY
valve stems banned but the NTSB and the Suzuki consumer advocate never responded to my 10 or so letters and emails. It seems that untill someone crashes and takes out a school bus full of kids, their not conserned.
Good luck with the repairs. Like I said above, you and your insurance company sould not have to pay for anything. The Dealers insurance should foot the bills and SOME compensation for pain and suffering, the big word is SOME. I am still tring to finish my settlement from my Dec 2010 crash.
