US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 03V223
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 5,319


Summary:
Certain vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 212, "Windshield Mounting." The windshield may not be properly secured to the vehicle body due to insufficient adhesion between the paint applied during the second-stage painting process and the paint applied during final-stage painting. If the windshield is not properly secured, it may separate from the vehicle during a crash, which could result in the ejection of unbelted occupants, increasing the risk of severe injury or death.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect these vehicles. Vehicles that are found to have insufficient paint adhesion will either have the problem remedied by repainting, or will be replaced, or repurchased and destroyed. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during July 2003. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934.

Dates of Manufacture:
December 2001 - February 2003
