Suzuki has issued a recall for 184,244 cars in the U.S. after a potential problem with the steering column in these vehicles came to light. Specifically, the headlamp switch or daytime running light module in these vehicles has a problem with overheating, which can eventually cause it to melt and cause the left side of the steering column to catch fire.
The problem relates to a similar recall issued earlier in the week by General Motors, which also was involved in the production of these vehicles. Two different parts suppliers, Woochang in South Korea and Hamsar Diversco in Canada, were responsible for manufacturing the defective headlamp switches and daytime running light modules, respectively.
The recall will affect a substantial range of Suzuki vehicles: all Suzuki Forenza models between 2004 and 2008 as well as all Reno models from 2005 to 2008.
