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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The power steering pump pulley may separate from the pump due to inadequate wall thickness of the pulley.

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.
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.

Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, UNDER AMBIENT TEMPERATURES BELOW -25 DEGREES CELSIUS, MOISTURE CAN FREEZE IN THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR. AS A RESULT, FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE MAY INCREASE AT THE TIME OF ENGINE START UP, CAUSING FUEL LOSS AT THE FUEL PIPE/FUEL HOSE CONNECTION.
RepairPal Expert Overview:

A problem with the adaptive fuel control logic may allow air/fuel ratios that are lean enough to cause the engine to stall during deceleration. If the engine stalls without warning, a crash could result. Dealers will reprogram the Electronic Control Module (ECM) on affected vehicles. The recall began September 14, 2004. The Suzuki recall number is KE.

Summary:
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE ACCELERATOR CABLE CASING CAP THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE VEHICLE FIREWALL CAN CRACK DUE TO EXTENDED EXPOSURE TO FORCES FROM THE ACCELERATOR CABLE AND INSUFFICIENT LONG-TERM DURABILITY OF THE PLASTIC CASING CAP. IF THE CASING CAP BECOMES CRACKED, MOVEMENT OF THE INNER ACCELERATOR CABLE THROUGH THE CAP CAN CAUSE THE INNER ACCELERATOR CABLE TO BECOME FRAYED.
RepairPal Expert Overview:

The ignition system wiring harness can rub against the underside of the intake manifold. Abrasive damage to the harness can cause a short to ground in the ignition power circuit, causing the ignition fuse to blow and the engine to stall and not restart. This can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair any ignition wire harness damage and add additional insulation and a protector plate to prevent future damage. The Suzuki recall number is EN.

 

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The dual stage driver's frontal air bag may deploy in an improper sequence. If the air bag deploys improperly in a crash, the driver could be severely injured or killed.
