Suzuki may officially be out of the new-car market in the U.S., but it still has plenty of vehicles on American roads that it has sold over the past nearly three decades, and over that period of time, it's nearly inevitable that some models will have some issue. Although the total number of models affected by this recall is relatively small, the potential issue could cause a big headache for owners. Model year 2007 Suzuki XL7 SUVs may have a faulty plastic fuel pump module housing that could crack, resulting in fuel leakage and a possible fire.
The Problem: 2007 model-year Suzuki XL7 crossover models originally sold or registered in Arizona, California, Nevada, or Texas may have a faulty plastic fuel pump module in which the fuel return or supply port could develop a crack, resulting in a fuel leak, which could lead to an engine compartment fire.
The Fix: Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers or authorized repair facilities will replace the fuel pump module free of charge. A notification time frame has not yet been announced. Owners can contact Suzuki at 714-996-7040 or NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 2830 XL7 models manufactured from June 13, 2006, through December 22, 2006, and originally sold or registered in Arizona, California, Nevada, or Texas.
