Recall roundup: Suzuki Forenza and Reno in the U.S. image

The Japanese based automaker Suzuki has recently announced a recall for the Suzuki Forenza and Reno models because of a problem with the headlight assemblies.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners of the 2004-2006 Suzuki Forenza and of the 2005-2006 Suzuki Reno will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a potential faulty headlight assembly. The NHTSA is saying that a poor contact in the headlight terminals can cause the splice pack to melt and this might result in the complete loss of the headlight functionality, increasing the risk of a crash.

“Suzuki is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 Forenza and model year 2005-2006 Reno vehicles manufactured from September 23, 2003, through March 7, 2006. Increased resistance due to poor contact between the terminals of certain wires can generate heat that can melt the splice pack used to connect the power circuit wires for the headlamps. This can result in intermittent or total loss of low/high beam headlamp function”, as the NHTSA is saying in its recalls summary of the problem.

All owners of the above mentioned models will soon be notified by Suzuki and the company’s dealers will inspect the vehicles and do the necessary repairs free of charge. The recall will begin in Septemeber, 2012. Owners of the Forenza and Reno, from the model years mentioned above, can contact Suzuki at 1-714-996-7040 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153).
