The fuel feeding impeller in the fuel pump, which is made of resin material, may be swollen and deformed due to the insufficient material density caused by the improper injection moulding process. Consequently, the impeller may interfere with the fuel pump housing, resulting in the fuel pump malfunction.
As a result, the engine could stop while driving, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Suzuki Jimny models affected by this recall were manufactured between 9 May to 22 November 2018.
