Newly-released Suzuki Kizashi already being recalled over inopportune opening of glovebox


We’re guessing this isn’t the kind of start Suzuki was expecting with their new Kizashi sedan. Barely a year after the car was launched; it’s already facing its first recall issues. Not good. Not good, at all.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 5,701 Kizashi sedans – those that were manufactured from October 13, 2009 through May 31, 2010 - are poised to be recalled over issues with the center-lower glove box on the dashboard, which as it turns out, may open in the event of a crash possibly causing a potentially serious injury if it hits any of the front passengers.

The Kizashi recall is expected to begin sometime in the middle of July at which time Suzuki will be replacing the part in question at no cost to the car owners. In the event that you have a Kizashi sitting in your garage all nice and new, you might want to err on the side of caution and give Suzuki a call at 1-714-996-7040.

That’s like saying if your head hit the windshield hard enough, the glass would break first.

I feel a bit disappointed for Suzuki Kizashi i have a good reviews about it then...they
just made a recall for it..what the hell..

I thought from the concept this was going to be a Camry/Accord fighter, but it’s just a Corolla fighter?

what? I really get frustrated every time automakers do that especially with the Toyota. After they made those drooling teaser video for Kizashi, just see what they do to the expectation..smiley

I’m just wondering when you are too excited for a product to come out then suddenly you find out that the product that you are going to purchase has a problem are you going to buy it and give the manufacturer a chance... if you say yes..I feel pity for you.

A very awful way to start. Hope this would be the last time this will happen.

i hope they can fix this problem as soon as possible

well this is just a minor problem, good thing that this recall had nothing to do with it’s performance.
