1999-2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 1999-2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara vehicles manufactured between June 1998 and June 2000.

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.

59,888 vehicles are affected by this recall.

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.
