Japan's Suzuki recalls over 100,000 Swifts worldwide
Japan's Suzuki Motor said Monday it will recall about 109,000 Swift
subcompact cars worldwide, half of them in Japan, to repair a defect
that may cause petrol leakage.
The cars were produced between September 2010 and last month with
55,146 of them shipped to the domestic market and 53,801 others exported
outside the country, including Australia, Mexico, and Europe, a company
Suzuki said in a statement that an inadequate connection on the
rubber fuel filler hose could cause petrol to leak.
Four cases of such leakage have been reported in Japan but they did
not lead to any accidents, the statement said.
“There have been no reports of such defects abroad,” the spokesman
“About the exported cars, we will deal with them in keeping with
local procedures of the countries concerned.”
