Grand Vitara

AIR BAGS

Recall number: 13V405000
Recall date: 09/06/2013

Problem Summary:

SUZUKI MOTOR OF AMERICA, INC. (SUZUKI) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006-2011 GRAND VITARA AND 2007-2011 SX4 VEHICLES. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, OVER TIME, THE OCS SENSOR MAT INSTALLED IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT MAY FAIL DUE TO REPEATED FLEXING OF THE MAT FROM USE OF THE SEAT. AS A RESULT, DURING A CRASH NECESSITATING DEPLOYMENT, THE AIR BAG WILL DEPLOY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE FRONT SEAT OCCUPANT IS AN ADULT OR A CHILD.

Consequence:

AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT WITH A CHILD IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE SEAT INCREASES THE RISK OF INJURY TO THAT CHILD.

Corrective Action:

SUZUKI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT CUSHION ASSEMBLY (WHICH INCLUDES THE OCS SENSOR MAT) FREE OF CHARGE. SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES OF PARTS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO FIX ALL OF THE AFFECTED VEHICLES. OWNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED OF THE RECALL IN OCTOBER 2013 AND WILL RECEIVE A SECOND NOTIFICATION WHEN PARTS ARE AVAILABLE TO HAVE THEIR VEHICLE REPAIRED. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-800-934-0934. SUZUKI'S RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS VD.

THE TENSION ADJUSTER PULLEY FOR THE DRIVE BELT THAT OPERATES THE ALTERNATOR, WATER PUMP, AIR CONDITIONER COMPRESSOR AND POWER STEERING PUMP, HAS AN IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED INTERNAL SPRING THAT CAN BREAK DUE TO REPEATED STRESS.

THIS CAN ALSO CAUSE THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE INDICATION TO RISE, WHICH CAN LEAD TO THE ENGINE OVERHEATING, OR CAN CAUSE THE CHARGING LIGHT TO COME ON, WHICH CAN LEAD TO BATTERY DISCHARGE AND ENGINE STALL.

Consequence:

IF THE DRIVE BELT COMES OFF, REQUIRING THE DRIVER TO USE INCREASED STEERING EFFORT, OR THE ENGINE STALLS, A VEHICLE CRASH COULD OCCUR
