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.
