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.
