Equator

SUSPENSION:FRONT:HUB

Recall number: 12V464000
Recall date: 09/19/2012

Problem Summary:

SUZUKI IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 EQUATOR TWO-WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JUNE 19, 2012, THROUGH JULY 12, 2012. THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN EQUIPPED WITH FRONT WHEEL HUBS THAT MAY NOT MEET THE DESIGN HARDNESS SPECIFICATIONS. A WHEEL HUB THAT WAS MANUFACTURED BELOW HARDNESS SPECIFICATION MAY WEAR PREMATURELY AND EVENTUALLY CRACK.

Consequence:

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, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A VEHICLE CRASH.

Corrective Action:

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 FREE OF CHARGE. CUSTOMERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-877-697-8985.
