Component not known


01V146
On certain sport utility vehicles, when temperatures are below minus 25 degrees Celsius (minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit), moisture can freeze in the fuel pressure regulator. Fuel system pressure could increase at the time of engine start up, causing fuel loss at the fuel pipe/fuel hose connection. Fuel loss in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
Dealers will install a redesigned intake manifold vacuum union and a new fuel pressure regulator. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began April 23, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

Component not known


03V512
On certain sport utility vehicles, the accelerator cable cap that is attached to the vehicle firewall can crack due to extended exposure to forces from the accelerator cable and insufficient long-term durability of the plastic casing cap. If the casing cap becomes cracked, movement of the inner accelerator cable through the cap can cause the inner accelerator cable to become frayed. If the inner accelerator cable becomes frayed, it can stick during vehicle operation, which could result in a crash.
Dealers will replace the accelerator cable, which includes the plastic casing cap. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on January 5, 2004. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

99V273002
Some of these vehicles have an inoperative brake lamp actuating switch. If the switch does not function properly when the brake pedal is depressed, the brake lights may be inoperative. On vehicles equipped with an automatic transaxle, a failure in the brake lamp actuating switch may also prevent shifting out of "Park". This does not comply with the requirements of FMVSS No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment".
Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch assembly. Owner notification was expected to begin during November 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

During port installation of rear stereo speakers, the front seat belt lower anchor bolts were removed to facilitate the rear speaker installation and may not have been torqued to specification after installation of the speakers. In the event of a crash, the seat belts may not properly restrain an occupant, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Component not known


03V223
Certain vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 212, "Windshield Mounting." The windshield may not be properly secured to the vehicle body due to insufficient adhesion between the paint applied during the second-stage painting process and the paint applied during final-stage painting. If the windshield is not properly secured, it may separate from the vehicle during a crash, which could result in the ejection of unbelted occupants, increasing the risk of severe injury or death.
Dealers will inspect these vehicles. Vehicles that are found to have insufficient paint adhesion will either have the problem remedied by repainting, or will be replaced, or repurchased and destroyed. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during July 2003. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

01V070
Some sport utility vehicles do not comply with the certain requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles other than Passenger Cars." The presentation of some of the information on the tire information label deviates from the format set forth in the standard and the label may not be "permanently affixed" as required by the standard. The label may not be fully understood by some customers.
Dealers will install new labels as well as an update to the owner's manual. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began March 26, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

Component not known


03V495
On certain sport utility vehicles, the ignition system wiring harness is routed under the intake manifold. The harness can rub against the manifold during vehicle operation and abrasion damage to the harness can occur. Damage to the wiring harness can cause a short in the ignition circuit, which can cause the ignition fuse to blow and the engine to stall. This can result in a loss of control of the vehicle and could cause a crash.
Dealers will repair any wiring harness damage and will add additional insulation and a protector plate to prevent the wiring harness from becoming damaged. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on December 16, 2003. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

19V187000
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain 2010-2013 Kizashi and 2006-2013 Grand Vitara vehicles. The front passenger leather seat may shrink due to high humidity and high temperature. As a result, the occupant classification system (OCS) sensor mat may not accurately detect if an adult or child is occupying the seat.

Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat bottom cushion, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki's numbers for this recall are 4011 and 4012.
