A recall has been issued for the 2007 Suzuki XL7, but only those vehicles either bought or registered in four states: Texas, Arizona, California and Nevada. Potentially 2,380 of the SUVs manufactured from June 13, 2006 to December 22, 2006 could have an issue with their fuel pump modules: The plastic supply or return port could crack. If that happens, it could lead to a fuel leak and then to a fire.

Suzuki hasn't said when the recall will begin. Once it does, owners will be notified and can have their dealers make the necessary repairs free of charge. There's a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below with more information.

      Wait a minute, shouldn't the Chevrolet Equinox be recalled then? They are essentially the exact same vehicle that is built on the same line as the Equinox and Torrent....

        Suzuki just announced they are pulling out of the American market. Mitsubishi was asked if they are considering doing so and they said that they are staying.

      A Forenza is not a Suzuki FYI ....it's a Daewoo rebadge as a Suzuki which was brought here by Chevy when they had some control of Suzuki. The XL7 being recalled is another example...a Chevy rebadge as a Suzuki. Yea buy American! Can I interest you in any of those new model Fords that are constantly being recalled? People should reasearch the car's they are buying.

        Daewoo is a seperate entity owned by GM. They are/were not rebadged "Chevys". People should research the cars they are bashing.

          Really? My hostility and sarcasm? Most of the comments in this article are hostile and sarcastic. Guess I should have joined in and made sarcastic and hostile comments about Suzuki. If it makes you feel better to call me immature, go right ahead.

          Maybe you misread...I mentioned that the Forenza was a Daewoo rebadge as Suzuki. Ok not Chevy but GM which as you mentioned, Daewoo, a separate entity owned by GM were rebadge as Suzuki. In conclusion Forenza is not a Suzuki. And like it or not the XL 7 being recalled is a rebadge Chevy Equinox, about the only thing the American Suzuki design studio did was put the ugly head lights and extend the length a bit and different engine. As some one else mentioned it was built on the same line.

          I know where the XL7 originated, that was never up for debate. The XL7 is simply not a "rebadge". It's called platform sharing, and that is a relative term in this case given that the XL7 rides on a modified version of the Equinox chassis. They are different animals, yet still share some commonality and, yes, were built on the same assembly line. I'm not a GM cheerleader & do not see through rose colored glasses, but I do understand that recalls are often part of the automotive business regardless of a manufacturers origin, so your hostility & sarcasm towards GM/Ford is immature. Bias is to fairness as discrimination is to prejudice.

      Hopefully for those couple thousand, they still have a Suzuki dealer close by.
