Small number of Suzuki Vitara SUVs recalled

Diesel-powered Suzuki Vitara SUVs could be affected by software fault…

A software issue is to blame for a recall of a small number of Suzuki Vitara SUVs sold in Australia.

The recall affects just 47 vehicles and you can see if your Vitara is affected here (have your VIN handy).

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) the recall notice says Suzuki Vitara vehicles fitted with a diesel engine and sold between the 23rd of January 2015 and the 25th of September 2016 are affected.

It has been found that the Ambient Temperature Sensor Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) in these vehicles may not illuminate due to an incorrect software programme.

This may cause reduction in engine power and the vehicle to fall outside of emissions regulations.

Affected Suzuki Vitara owners will be contacted by direct mail and Suzuki recommends that the vehicle should be taken to an authorised Suzuki dealer for inspection and reprogramming.
