A batch of U.S. Suzuki 4x4s recalled
Suzuki’s American counterpart has started February with a bit of a tripping over and wrong choice for a Valentine’s Day present for their customers.
Before we start making jokes about Americans and inbreed relationships we should make it clear that the problem is related to the Suzuki SX4 and the Suzuki Grand Vitara.
The recall for these cars will begin on February the 16th so you can easily have that long Valentine’s weekend you’ve been wanting for a while now.
If you’re the owner of a Suzuki SX4 or a Grand Vitara and you’re among the “lucky” 32.000 people affected by this recall you’re probably going to want the NHTSA to tell you what exactly is wrong with your car.
In truth, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has that information ready for you. The problem with the recalled Suzukis is to be found within the tension adjuster pulley for the drive belt that operates the alternator.
It seems that because that pulley may have a wrongly manufactured internal spring it could lead to your Suzuki overheating its engine or actually stalling.
Should that happen you may end up facing a higher risks of accident on the motorway.
As ever, the Suzuki dealers will inspect and replace the recall generating part of your 4×4 free of charge.
