Problem Summary: SUZUKI DEL CARIBE (SUZUKI) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013 SX4 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED DECEMBER 26, 2012, THROUGH FEBRUARY 4, 2013 AND EQUIPPED WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION. THE BOLTS THAT FASTEN THE DRIVE PLATE TO THE TORQUE CONVERTER MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INSTALLED WITH SUFFICIENT TORQUE AND MAY LOOSEN AND COME OUT.
Consequence: IF THE BOLTS DETACH THEY CAN GET CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DRIVE PLATE AND CYLINDER BLOCK, WHICH MAY CAUSE THE ENGINE TO STALL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.
What Owners Should Do: SUZUKI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TORQUE CONVERTER BOLTS, TIGHTENING THEM AS NECESSARY, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN DECEMBER 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-800-572-1490. SUZUKI'S RECALL NUMBER IS VE.
