Remedy 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.
Remedy 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.
Remedy 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.
Summary 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.
Summary 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.
Summary 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.
