Suzuki Recalls 2007 XL7 SUV Despite Running Away from U.S. Market

By Jacob Brown | January 02, 2013
It seems like just yesterday when American Suzuki said it would be pulling out of the U.S. market, declaring bankruptcy amid sluggish sales and a dearth of new products. However, the automaker said it would continue service and support for its cars, trucks, SUVs, and crossovers despite bailing on the U.S. Now we get to see how. Suzuki is recalling 2,830 XL7 SUVs to fix their fuel pumps, which are prone to cracking and could lead to a fire. All of the vehicles are model year 2007, made from June 13, 2006, to December 22, 2006. If you wonder why the number of recalled Suzuki XL7s is so low, Suzuki is only recalling XL7s originally sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas.
Suzuki says it has not yet created a schedule for XL7s to be fixed, but it will replace said fuel pumps free of charge at service centers. It will notify owners via mail. Should owners of affected vehicles have further questions about the 2007 Suzuki XL7's recall, they can contact (714) 996-7040, referencing recall campaign "NZ," or call the National Traffic Safety Administration's hotline directly at (888) 327-4236, referencing campaign 12V597000.
