Vehicles Affected: Approximately 21,000 model-year 2010-13 Suzuki Kizashi sedans

The Problem: The front passenger-seat occupant classification system may misclassify an adult occupant as a child and deactivate the front airbag, preventing deployment in the event of a crash and increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: The remedy is still under development.
