It’s difficult to keep track of all the General Motors recalls going on at this moment, but here’s another one for you: the 2004-2008 Suzuki Forenza and 2005-2008 Reno. While the connection to GM may be lost on most people, the two models are badge-engineered vehicles produced by Daewoo, GM’s former South Korean subsidiary.
The problem: Heat could be generated in the headlamp switch or daytime running light module, which may then melt the switch and increase the risk of a fire. This is the same issue that affected 218,000 Chevrolet Aveos earlier this month.
Number of vehicles affected: In total, 184,000 vehicles sold by Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. are involved in this recall.
The fix: Suzuki will notify owners but a notification schedule has yet to be determined as the remedy is still under development.
Contact: Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki’s number for this recall is XA. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
