2012 Suzuki Equator (9/19/2012)

Campaign Number: 12V464000

Manufacturer: Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.
Description: Suzuki is recalling certain model year 2012 Equator two-wheel drive vehicles manufactured from June 19, 2012, through July 12, 2012.

A wheel hub that was manufactured below hardness specification may wear prematurely and eventually crack.
Defect: If the vehicle is driven with a cracked wheel hub, the wheel hub may break, which would reduce the driver's ability to control the vehicle, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.
Corrective Action: All of the affected vehicles have been quarantined at Suzuki dealers prior to being sold. As such, a recall notification letter will not be issued. Suzuki dealers will replace the left and right side front wheel hub assemblies free of charge. Customers may contact Suzuki at 1-877-697-8985.
