Recall roundup: Suzuki Jimny in Australia

Suzuki Australia has recently issued a recall for several Jimny models, because of a problem with the steering system.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), there are a total of 1,288 units of the Suzuki Jimny affected by this recall. The models in question will have to be taken back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the steering system solved. This has been announced due to a fastening bolt joint which may come loose and if this will drop off, the steering function may be compromised, becoming a hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

Suzuki hasn’t announced any incidents related to this issue and all owners of the above mentioned model will be contacted by mail. The company’s dealers will make the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge. The affected vehicles have been built between the 7th of May, 2012, and the 24th of March, 2014. The Suzuki Jimny, with its 1.3l four-cylinder engine, has been on sale in the Pacific country since 1998 and it starts at 20,490 AUD. A revised version of the model will be launched later on this year. For more details on the recall owners can contact Suzuki Australia at the closest dealership.
