Suzuki has announced a recall for the Kizashi models because of spider problems which seem to love the fuel tanks of the models.
After Mazda issued a recall for the Mazda6 because of the spider webs, time has come for another Japanese based automaker to do the same thing, over a similar problem. We are talking about the Suzuki and its Kizashi models which may have spider webs blocking the vehicles’ vent lines.
“In the affected vehicles, spiders may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent hose, blocking it and causing the fuel tank to have an excessive amount of negative pressure. Negative pressure could cause the fuel tank to crack resulting in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire”, says the NHTSA in its official press release.
The affected Suzuki Kizashi vehicles are from the 2010-2013 model year and they have been produced between October 2009 and July 2012. Owners of the 19,249 units affected will be notified by the company and the fuel tanks will be replaced. The repairs will be made free of charge. For any extra details on the subject, the owners can contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
