Suzuki Recalls Jimny 3-Door Models Over Fuel Pump Issue, 5-Door Models Unaffected

PT Suzuki Indomobil Sales (PT SIS), the Indonesian subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, has announced a recall campaign for 448 units of the Suzuki Jimny 3-Door model produced between November 20, 2017 and August 29, 2019. The recall is part of Suzuki's 'Product Quality Update' initiative, which aims to ensure the quality and safety of their vehicles even after the warranty period has ended.

The recall is due to a potential issue with the fuel pump impeller, which could become deformed and cause the fuel pump to malfunction, leading to engine problems. Suzuki will contact affected Jimny 3-Door owners to have the fuel pump component inspected and replaced free of charge at authorized Suzuki workshops across 33 provinces in Indonesia. The replacement process is expected to take around 2 hours.

Why this matters: The recall highlights Suzuki's commitment to maintaining high quality standards and ensuring the safety and comfort of its customers, even for models that are no longer in production. It also highlights the importance of proactive measures taken by automakers to address potential issues and provide the best service to their customers.

Suzuki has assured customers that the newer Jimny 5-Door model, which was launched in 2024, is not affected by this recall. The company emphasizes that this recall is an evaluation and ongoing responsibility to address the issue and provide the best service to its customers. Replacement parts for the affected Jimny 3-Door models are being imported from Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) in Japan.

In a statement, PT SIS said, "This recall is part of Suzuki's commitment to maintaining high quality standards and ensuring the safety and comfort of its customers. We will contact affected Jimny 3-Door owners to have the fuel pump component inspected and replaced free of charge at authorized Suzuki workshops." The company also stated that this recall will not impact the sales of the Jimny 5-Door model, as customers continue to trust Suzuki's commitment to providing quality products and services.
