Recall Alert: 2010 Suzuki Equator

Recall Alert: 2010 Suzuki Equator

Remember the recall notice for the 2010 Nissan Frontier that we told you about last week, due to under-torqued or missing fasteners in the airbag module and steering shaft? It applies to the 2010 Suzuki Equator pickup truck as well, since it's based on the Frontier.

Loose or missing fasteners could lead to two different issues. In the event of a crash, the front passenger airbag could deploy incorrectly. The fasteners in the steering column could come loose during driving and increase the risk of a crash.

Suzuki dealers will inspect the steering column and the passenger front airbag fasteners and any missing fasteners will be replaced and all loose fasteners will be retightened to the proper torque specification free of charge.

Suzuki hasn't yet said when it will notify owners. Only 15 trucks are affected by the recall. Owners can contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
