Recall Alert: 2009-10 Suzuki Equator

Suzuki is recalling 20,692 vehicles, including select 2009-10 Equator midsize pickup trucks, equipped with Garmin Nuvi 750, 760 and 765 portable navigation units that contain batteries that could overheat and cause a fire.

Suzuki will begin notifying Equator owners affected by the recall by September 13. A repair will be performed by a Garmin representative who will replace the deffective battery and insert a spacer on top of the new battery to prevent the risk of overheating.

The recalled devices include Nuvi model numbers: 200W, 250W and 260W, and 7xx (where xx is a two-digit number).

Owners can determine their model number by looking at the label on the back or bottom of their GPS unit.

Equator owners with questions can contact Garmin directly at 1-866-957-1981 or Suzuki at 1-887-697-8985. Owners can also visit Garmin's website at http://www.garmin.com/nuvibatterypcbrecall.

glad to see suzuki/garmin doing the right thing no truck is perfect never been in a suzuki and never want to be but that gps set up in the pic is pretty sweet

It looks like an antique.

@moparman - I like the setup as well. Much cleaner looking than a suction cup on the windscreen and wires dangling down.
I used one of these Garmin Nuvi's on our summer vacation. Great little device for navigating the "big city".

i am so glad this internet thing works and your article really helped me.
