2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001
Suzuki Grand Vitara automobiles manufactured between September 2000 and February 2001.
Some sport utility vehicles do not comply with
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.
14,911 vehicles are affected by this recall.
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.
