    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.

    What Owners Should Do

    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.
