August 4, 1999
Suzuki Vitara Year: 1999
Dates of Manufacture: Prior to June 1999
Defect: During port installation of rear stereo
speakers, the front seat belt lower anchor bolts were removed to
facilitate the rear speaker installation and may not have been
torqued to specification after installation of the speakers. In the
event of a crash, the seat belts may not properly restrain an
occupant, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy: Dealers will re-torque both of the front
seat belt lower anchor bolts to specification. Owner notification
began June 28, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy
within a reasonable time should contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.
