Suzuki, Mitsubishi issue recalls on crossovers

WASHINGTON — Japanese automakers Suzuki and Mitsubishi issued separate recalls on Friday to fix issues with crossover vehicles.

Suzuki told the government it is recalling nearly 70,000 SX4 compact crossovers from the 2007-2010 model years to replace screws on the outside rearview mirrors that could become loose. Suzuki said the mirrors could become loose because of vibration and fall off the vehicle, creating a safety risk.

Suzuki spokesman Andrew Nicolai said the automaker issued a temporary stop sale on SX4s currently in dealer inventory for a few days but it concluded Thursday once replacement screws arrived at dealerships.

Suzuki said there have been no crashes or injuries reported.

Separately, Mitsubishi is recalling more than 19,000 Endeavor crossover vehicles from the 2006-2008 model years to address air conditioning problems. It says the air flow could randomly change direction and the temperature could cycle between hot and cold.

The problem could affect the defroster, which could lead to poor windshield visibility and a crash. Mitsubishi spokesman Dan Irvin said it investigated after receiving a few warranty claims about the issue. There have been no crashes or injuries tied to the recall.

Mitsubishi said the recall is expected to begin in December. Owners can contact Mitsubishi at (800) 222-0037.

Suzuki said it had not yet determined the timing of the recall. Owners can call Suzuki at (877) 284-8301.
