RepairPal Expert Overview:

All late model vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure information label. These vehicles are being recalled because "none" may be indicated for the recommended spare tire pressure. As a result the spare tire may not be properly inflated and ready to use if the need arises. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and attach a new tire pressure label as necessary to correct this concern.

Body, Interior & Misc., June 26, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The driver's front airbag inflator may have been manufactured with an incorrect part. If a crash occurs requiring deployment of the driver's airbag, the inflator may rupture and the airbag may not inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike and potentially seriously injure the vehicle occupants. Additionally, if the airbag does not inflate, the driver is at an increased risk of injury. Dealers will replace the driver side airbag to correct this concern.

Electrical & Lights, June 26, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

For Models: Suzuki Verona
