Spider run forces Suzuki to recall its mid-size cars

Spiders have forced Suzuki to recall more than 19,000 midsize cars. The Japanese automaker says spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kizashi cars, cutting off air flow. If that happens, it can cause the gas tank to deform, causing cracks, fuel leaks and possible fires. The recall was prompted by seven reports of the problem.

Service centers will replace the vent line with one that has a filter on the end. They’ll also replace gas tanks if necessary. The problem hasn’t caused any accidents or injuries in the US, Suzuki said in documents posted Wednesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Owners will be notified this month.

American Suzuki Motor Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November of 2012 and stopped selling automobiles in the United States of America. The recall is the second caused by spiders this year.
