Suzuki recalls

 

For Models: Suzuki Equator

Suspension & Steering, June 1, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The lower control link weld in the bushing area may crack, which may cause the wheel alignment angle to change. This may cause difficulty controlling the vehicle and could lead to an accident. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace one or both lower control links. This recall began on June 1, 2010.

For Models: Suzuki Equator

Body, Interior & Misc., April 23, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fasteners securing the passenger air bag and the steering shaft positioning bracket may not have been tightened correctly. The passenger side air bag may not deploy as designed. Also, the steering column may become loose, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the fasteners in question, replace any that are missing, and properly torque all affected fasteners to the proper specification. No letters will be sent as all affected vehicles have been repaired.

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara

Drive Train, January 7, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The automatic transmission selector lever "park" lock function may be inoperative due to a sticking shift lock arm. As a result the shift lever may be able to be moved out of "park" with the key removed and without depressing the brake pedal. This could cause unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the shift lock module to correct this problem. This recall is expected to begin on January 7, 2008. The Suzuki recall number is PE.

 

For Models: Suzuki Forenza

Electrical & Lights, October 31, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A melted splice pack in the wiring may cause the low beam headlights or daytime running lights not to function. Insufficient lighting could reduce visibility and increase the potential for a crash. Dealers will splice the power circuit wires for the low beam headlights and DRL free of charge. The recall began October 31, 2007. The Suzuki recall number is NB.

For Models: Suzuki Forenza

Body, Interior & Misc., August 31, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The front seat belt may not latch correctly in the buckle. In rare cases, the locked seat belt may come loose unexpectedly, disengaging without pressing the release button. These malfunctions could cause the seat belt not to function as designed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the left and right front seat belt buckles to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on August 31, 2007. The Suzuki recall number is KY.

For Models: Suzuki Aerio

Drive Train, August 13, 2007

Summary: ON CERTAIN VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 5-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS, DUE TO IMPROPER SHAPE OF THE CLIP, THE RETAINING CLIP THAT KEEPS THE GEAR SHIFT CABLE ATTACHED TO THE GEAR SHIFT LEVER CAN CONTACT THE GEAR SHIFT LEVER HOUSING IF EXCESSIVE LATERAL FORCE IS APPLIED WHEN SHIFTING TO FIRST GEAR.

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara

Drive Train, February 13, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The retainer for the left rear axle may crack, resulting in fluid loss from the rear differential. The loss of fluid could result in severe internal damage and possible failure of the differential. Failure could disable the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the drive shaft retainer as necessary. This recall is expected to begin by December 15, 2005. The Suzuki recall number is HT.

For Models: Suzuki Verona

Suspension & Steering, December 1, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The power steering pump pulley may separate from the pump due to inadequate wall thickness of the pulley. This could cause the drive belt to come off, resulting in heavier than normal steering and potential engine overheating and/or stalling. Dealers will inspect and replace the power steering pulley as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on December 1, 2005. The Suzuki recall number is KJ.

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara, Suzuki XL-7

Brakes, November 10, 2005

Summary: ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 16-INCH WHEELS, THE FRONT BRAKE DISCS MAY BREAK UNDER SEVERE DRIVING CONDITIONS. THE BREAKAGE CAN OCCUR IN CONDITIONS WHERE THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN ON A REGULAR BASIS ON EXTREMELY STEEP PAVED DOWN-SLOPES WHILE CONTINUOUSLY APPLYING THE BRAKES.

For Models: Suzuki Forenza, Suzuki Verona

Electrical & Lights, March 16, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The brake light switch may be knocked out of adjustment if an upward/rearward force contacts the brake pedal. If this happens, the lights would remain on whether or not the brake pedal is applied, and will remain illuminated even when the key is switched off. This condition could drain the battery if left, and increase the risk of a rear end crash since drivers will not know when the brakes are applied. This condition would also disable the automatic transmission torque converter clutch, cruise control, and the traction control system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch. The recall began March 16, 2005. The Suzuki recall number is KF.
