Recall: 2007 Suzuki XL7 for fuel leaks
Fuel-pump line on the discontinued SUV could crack, especially in hot weather; 4 warm-weather states targeted.
I own one of these XL7's and my wife and I along with our friends have witnessed the issue they are recalling it for. While it is parked in our driveway I have smelled gasoline near and around the vehicle like someone spilled it! I am not pleased with the fact that the recall is only being issued in Warm States. I live in New Hampshire and know for a fact that it is an issue in New Hampshire... Hello a fire can happen in New Hampshire just as easy as Nevada...
If you would of read the whole article, it also includes chevy, pontiac, and saturn.
gets your facts straight dumb a$$
The article makes if appear that Suzuki was using GM made parts, it's actually the other way around.
Suzuki is a parts supplier for other car manufacturers, including GM, Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota, Fiat, etc. Suzuki may be pulling out of the US car market but the odds are many of you will still be buying cars made with Suzuki parts.
I contacted the local dealership. They have not received a recall notice therefore any repairs will be at my expense. They were professional and kind. They suggested I contact Suzuki directly...
I am going to contact them, but hold very little hope that this will be resolved in my favor. I could be wrong, but it does not look good. We have been happy with the vehicle otherwise and the service work that has been done on it so far. @ ) I have owned several Fords, Volvo's, Chevy's, Honda's, VW's and Chryslers, Dodge in my 26+ years of driving. All of the aforementioned makes have their own unique issues. I am well aware that I get what I pay for. That is why I purchased a bumper to bumper warrantee on the Suzuki. The only thing that is not covered are oil changes, brakes and tires which are wear items. To date the best vehicle I have owned is my 2009 VW with my 2002 Dodge Caravan running a close second and it has 205,000 miles on it!
Many vehicles that GM has a hand in, go down the toilet.
Suzuki is leaving the market here because of poor sales....more like poor GM engineering for it's parnter.
Reminds me how GM turned their back on their deal with Toyota at NUMMI and as a final show of low integrity, left Toyota to pay the bills and ultimately forced the closure of the plant putting thousands of Americans out of work.
Wait til the new "right to work" bill kicks in. GM quality will sink even further.....if thats even possible.
The "Old GM" is still here...just re-named.
I GUESS I SHOULD COUNT MY BLESSINGS FOR BUYING A 2004 XL7 SUZUKI THAT WAS
MADE IN JAPAN AND HAS NEVER BEEN RECALLED. I NOW HAVE OVER 137,000 MILES
AND I DON'T INTEND TO REPLACE IT ANYTIME SOON. THE ORIGINAL RED METALIC PAINT
JOB AND DESIGN IS OUTSTANDING, STILL LOOKS NEW, RUNS GREAT AND IS FUN TO DRIVE.
