2011 SUZUKI SX4
NHTSA Campaign ID: 13V405000
Component: AIR BAGS
Manufacturer: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 06/01/2010 - 05/10/2011
Potential Units Affected: 189901
Defect Description:
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Grand Vitara and 2007-2011 SX4 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, over time, the OCS sensor mat installed in the front passenger seat may fail due to repeated flexing of the mat from use of the seat. As a result, during a crash necessitating deployment, the air bag will deploy regardless of whether the front seat occupant is an adult or a child.
Consequence:
Air bag deployment with a child in the front passenger side seat increases the risk of injury to that child.
Action to take:
Suzuki will notify owners and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion assembly (which includes the OCS sensor mat) free of charge. Sufficient quantities of parts are not currently available to fix all of the affected vehicles. Owners will be notified of the recall in October 2013 and will receive a second notification when parts are available to have their vehicle repaired. The recall began on May 23, 2014. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki's recall campaign number is VD.
