Suzuki recalls

 

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara, Suzuki SX4

Body, Interior & Misc., September 6, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The passenger seat contains a sensor which helps determine if the passenger front airbag should deploy or not in the event of a crash. It is called the occupant classification system (OCS), and is a mat that is part of the passenger seat cushion. These vehicles are being recalled because the OCS may fail due to the repeated flexing of the mat from general use of the seat. As a result, in the event of a crash the passenger airbag may deploy when it should not, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion (which includes the OCS sensor mat) to correct this concern.

For Models: Suzuki XL-7

Engine, December 20, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

One of the fuel line connections at the fuel pump module can crack, and if this were to occur, a fuel leak would develop from the fuel tank area. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Because of this, Xl-7 models first sold or currently registered in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas are being recalled. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern.

For Models: Suzuki Equator

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.

For Models: Suzuki Forenza, Suzuki Reno

Electrical & Lights, August 13, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Increased resistance due to poor contact between the terminals of certain wires can generate heat that can melt the splice pack used to connect the power circuit wires for the headlamps. This can result in intermittent or total loss of low/high beam headlamp function. If the headlamps fail to function, this will lead to reduced driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reconnect the affected wires with two heat-shrink crimps to correct this problem. The Suzuki recall number is NU.

For Models: Suzuki Equator

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.

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara, Suzuki SX4

Engine, January 27, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

As a result of a failed tensioner, the accessory drive belt may slip or come off completely. This will result in hard steering and illumination of the charging system warning light. If the vehicle is driven in this condition, the engine may stall as a result of a discharged battery and the engine temperature warning light may illuminate. Loss of vehicle control due to hard steering or engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the tensioner with an improved part to correct this concern. This recall is to begin on February 16, 2011. The Suzuki recall number is SM.

For Models: Suzuki SX4

Body, Interior & Misc., November 5, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Suzuki is recalling 2007 SX4 hatchbacks and 2008–2010 SX4 hatchback and sedan models due to problems with the outside rear view mirrors. The three screws that secure the mirrors to their base may become loose due to vibration. This may cause the mirror to fall off, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the base screws on both outside rear view mirrors free of charge.

For Models: Suzuki Equator, Suzuki Grand Vitara, Suzuki SX4

Body, Interior & Misc., September 24, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Suzuki is recalling 2008–2010 SX4; 2010 Grand Vitara; and 2009–2010 Equator models equipped with Garmin Nuvi 750, 760, and 765 navigation systems because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Suzuki will notify owners and Garmin technicians will replace the unit's battery and insert a spacer to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

For Models: Suzuki Kizashi

Body, Interior & Misc., July 13, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

In the event of a crash, the hinged door of the storage compartment located in the center of the dashboard may not stay closed, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the lower center storage compartment to correct this concern.

For Models: Suzuki Grand Vitara, Suzuki XL-7

Suspension & Steering, June 28, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The belt tensioner pulley for the power steering and AC has an outer portion made of plastic. The plastic may deteriorate and pieces of the pulley can break off, which could cause the drive belt to come off. It the drive belt were to come off, the steering would become difficult to turn, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected pulley to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 28, 2010. The Suzuki recall number is SB.
