The latest recall by Suzuki Motor Corp. for 25,900 Verona sedans is an expansion of an earlier recall in May for two other models for the same vehicle fire risk due to faulty daytime running lights.
This week’s recall affects Verona sedans manufactured between June 2003 and October 2005 in the United States, whereas the earlier recall, affected 184,244 Suzuki Forenza and Reno models, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in its report.
The problem is caused by heat generated in a module in the instrument panel that provides for the daytime running lights in these vehicles. The heat is intense enough to potentially melt the module and possibly cause a vehicle fire.
The vehicles were all manufactured by General Motors in South Korea.
If you are the owner of one of these vehicles, Suzuki will replace the DRL module at no charge by calling them at 800-934-0934.
