Among the 25 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Logo - Suzuki Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (“Suzuki”) has recalled an estimated 31,302 model year 2010-2013 Kizashi and 2006-2013 Grand Vitara vehicles. The front passenger leather seat may shrink due to high humidity and high temperature. As a result, the occupant classification system (“OCS”) sensor mat may not accurately detect if an adult or child is occupying the seat.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, an incorrect classification may result in the passenger frontal air bag deploying even if there is a child in the front passenger seat, increasing their risk of injury.

Suzuki will notify registered owners and dealers will replace the seat bottom cushion, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki’s designations for this recall are 4011 and 4012.
