Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain 2010-2013 Suzuki Kizashi vehicles. Dust can enter the vent line that provides fresh air to the carbon canister, restricting its air flow and possibly creating excessive negative pressure in the fuel tank which may result in the fuel tank cracking.
A cracked tank may leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire.
The remedy for this recall is still under development. Interim notification letters were mailed on December 14, 2018. Owners will receive a second notification when the remedy is available. Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at 1-800-934-0934.

Suzuki Motor Of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 Kizashi vehicles manufactured October 2009 through July 2012.
