Recall Alert: 2010 Suzuki Equator

Recall Alert: 2010 Suzuki Equator
By Stephen Markley

Suzuki has issued a recall for 582 Equator pickup trucks from the 2010 model year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects trucks manufactured between Nov. 20, 2009 and March 3, 2010. It's due to the same suspension problem that's prompted Nissan to recall the Frontier pickup. The lower control link bushing collars in the front suspension may contain weak welds. If the welds break, it could change the wheel alignment and affect vehicle handling, possibly leading to an accident.

Nissan builds the Equator for Suzuki off the Frontier platform.

Dealers will inspect the lower control links and replace them if necessary. Both the inspection and service will be free. Owners may contact Suzuki at 800-934-0934 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.

"can you even call this a pick up?"

The Equator/Frontier IS definitely a fairly capable midsize pickup utilizing a modified Titan chassis. It can easily out-class some other midsize pickups.

You guys want to know who builds the best mid size pickup?
Chevy Colorado.
Too bad they don't want to make them anymore.

@Bobby:

Not slamming the Colorado, but they have awful resale value, perceived inferior interior trim pieces and pale compared to the Tacoma/Frontier front runners.

The Chevrolet Colorado is one of the worst pick-up trucks ive ever seen or driven, General Motors should be ashamed for producing such a substandard vehicle. Total Scrap. The Suzuki Equator looks like we have a winner here, very nice machine!!
