Suzuki Motor of America is recalling 31,302 model year 2010-2013 Kizashis and model year 2006-2013 Grand Vitaras.
The front passenger leather seat may shrink due to high humidity and high temperature. As a result, the occupant classification system (OCS) sensor mat may not accurately detect if an adult or child is occupying the seat.
In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, an incorrect classification may result in the passenger front airbag deploying even if there is a child in the front passenger seat, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat bottom cushion, free of charge.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Suzuki customer service at (800) 934-0934. Suzuki's numbers for this recall are 4011 and 4012.
