The fastening bolts of the joint between the lateral rod and the axle housing in the front and rear suspension systems may become loose. In the worst case, the bolts can drop off. If this happens, and if the car is used in this condition, the operation of the steering might be affected.
The recall affects vehicles produced from 07 May 2012 to 24 March 2014, with VINs from JSAFJB43V00566788 to JSAFJB43V00603576.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.
If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Suzuki dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.
