2012 Suzuki Equator Recalls

Suspension & Steering,September 19, 2012
RepairPal Expert Overview:

25 vehicles may have been assembled with front wheel hubs that may not meet the design hardness specifications.  These hubs may wear prematurely and eventually crack. If the vehicle is driven with a cracked wheel hub, the wheel hub may break, which would reduce the driver's ability to control the vehicle. All of the affected vehicles have been quarantined at Suzuki dealers prior to being sold.  As such, a recall notification letter will not be issued.  Suzuki dealers will replace the left and right side front wheel hub assemblies to correct this concern. The Suzuki recall number is NY.

Engine,December 19, 2011
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some of the bolts that attach the engine oil cooler and filter to the engine may have been manufactured below specification strength. As a result, the bolt may break at the oil filter attachment point, which can cause an engine oil leak. Loss of too much engine oil can result in loss of oil pressure and the engine could seize, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the connector bolts to correct this concern. The Suzuki recall number is NT.
