Suzuki Recalls 184,244 GM-Built Cars in the U.S
Suzuki Motor Corp has announced a recall of 184,244 cars in the United States. These cars were built by General Motors and the reason behind the recall is a potential fire risk, according to documents filed with the U.S safety regulators.
The vehicles under recall include the Forenza and Reno from model years 2004 through 2008. The documents reveal that a faulty part in the daytime running lights could overheat and cause a fire, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The defect in the Suzuki cars is similar to the recall GM announced on 284,000 Chevrolet small cars globally on Wednesday, including almost 218,000 in the United States.
GM’s South Korean operations built all the cars affected at both companies. No injuries or fatalities have been reported from this issue. The repair for the recall is under progress and the company will notify owners once it is ready.
