Negative publicity has hit the Suzuki Kizashi before it arrives at our shore. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) of US has issued a recall on the Japanese sedan.

Evidently, the lower glove box door can pop open during an accident, possibly coming in contact with the front passenger's body at the same time. For those interested in vehicle regulatory control, the news means that the Kizashi doesn't conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 201. The standard deals with passenger protection from impact based on the car's interior.

According to the NHTSA, Suzuki will replace the faulty door with a new piece free of charge on all 5,107 Kizashi models covered by the recall. There's no word on how long the fix should take.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
