184,244 Suzuki Cars Recalled Due to Fire Risk

Rachel Moody2 years ago

According to USA Today, 184,244 small cars made by General Motors for the Suzuki Motor Corp. have been recalled due to the potential risk of the steering column catching on fire

The Suzuki Forenza and Reno were previously recalled back in August 2012 because their headlights could fail due to a faulty electrical connection

There is currently no fix for the hazard and a repair is still under development.

About the Suzuki Recall

Earlier last week, General Motors had to recall 217,668 Chevrolet Aveo and Optra subcompacts due to a defective headlamp switch or daytime running light module that could overheat, melt, and catch fire on the left side of the steering column. 

Suzuki has described having the same issue with its Forenza and Reno models. 

Description of the Forenza and Reno Recalls

  • The recall includes Suzuki Forenza models between 2004 and 2008 and Reno models from 2005 through 2008.
