Suzuki recalls over 69,000 SX4 units due to falling side-view mirrors

2011 Suzuki SX4 SportBack

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Suzuki is recalling 69,587 units of the SX4 due to problems with the side view mirrors. The recall includes 67,377 SX4 hatchback and sedan models from the 2008-2009 model years and 2,209 vehicles from the 2010 model year, plus one SX4 hatchback from the 2007 model year.

The NHTSA says that three screws used to attach each side view mirror to the vehicle can become loose from road vibrations, eventually causing the mirror to fall off the vehicle.

“Replacement screws are on their way to Suzuki dealers, and customer vehicles will be refitted as quickly as the parts arrive and customers make appointments with their dealers to have their vehicles serviced,” Suzuki said in an statement.

Suzuki said that dealers will replace the screw with new screws for free (obviously).
