2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara and 2005-2006 XL-7

The Problem: The plastic outer portion of the drive belt tension adjuster pulley can deteriorate due to heat. A broken piece of plastic can get caught between the pulley and the drive belt, requiring increased driver effort to steer and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Suzuki dealers will replace the belt tension adjuster pulley. The NHTSA expects the recall to begin in late June.

Number of vehicles potentially affected: 46,549
