4011 & 4012 – Passenger Seat Occupant Detection System may Fail – 2010-2013 Suzuki Kizashi & 2006-2013 Grand Vitara

March 7, 2019

Passenger Seat Occupant Detection System may Fail

In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, an incorrect classification may result in the passenger frontal air bag deploying even if there is a child in the front passenger seat, increasing their risk of injury.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V187

Manufacturer Suzuki Motor of America, Inc.

Components SEATS, AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected 31,302

 

Summary

Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain 2010-2013 Kizashi and 2006-2013 Grand Vitara vehicles. The front passenger leather seat may shrink due to high humidity and high temperature. As a result, the occupant classification system (OCS) sensor mat may not accurately detect if an adult or child is occupying the seat.

 

Remedy

Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat bottom cushion, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki’s numbers for this recall are 4011 and 4012.

 

Notes

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.
