Suzuki is recalling 2,830 model-year 2007 versions of the XL-7 SUV due to problems with the fuel pump, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from June 13 through Dec. 22, 2006, (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and originally sold or currently registered in Arizona, California, Nevada and Texas. These vehicles have a fuel pump module that could crack and leak, increasing the risk of a fire.
Suzuki has not yet provided an owner notification schedule, but dealers will inspect and replace the defective parts for free. Owners can call Suzuki at 714-996-7040 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
