Suzuki to recall 1.6 million cars due to air conditioning fault

Tokyo, March 4 (IANS) Suzuki Motor Corporation on Thursday said it will recall 1,616,125 mini-vehicles due to an air conditioning fault that could lead to engines stalling.

The automaker, headquartered in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, said that a lack of oil necessary for lubrication in some of its cars’ air conditioner compressors could lead to them overheating and stop, which would result in the cars’ engines failing as they decelerate, Xinhua reported.

Five models made by Suzuki are subject to the recall, including the popular Wagon R, known for its “tall wagon” or “tall boy” styling and near vertical hatchback, spanning units produced between January 2008 and May 2015, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism confirmed.

Suzuki said that more than 240 cases of engines stalling have been reported as a result of a lack of lubricant since December 2011, although the maker said there have been no reports of associated accidents or injuries as a result.
