Suzuki Recalls Kizashi Sedan for Glovebox Issue

Suzuki has issued a recall for its new Kizashi mid-sized sedan. A recall is never a good thing, particularly for a brand like Suzuki that is struggling to find a foothold in the U.S. market. It’s even worse when it’s for the bran’s all-new model – which by all accounts has received glowing reviews.

According to the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the recall is for Kizashi models built between October 13th, 2009 and May 31st, 2010 and is related to glovebox hinges that could allow the glovebox to pop open in the case of a crash – potentially increasing the risk of injury.

No injuries have been reported, however, and dealers will be prepared to fix the defective parts as of July 9th. In total, 5,107 Kizashi models have are affected.

    This is perhaps the LEAST significant recall I've ever heard of lol. But kudos to Suzuki for jumping right on it, no matter how small the issue is and issuing a recall. If anything I think this adds credibility to Suzuki's commitment to the Kizasi by doing a recall over something this insignificant.
