  2. 2003 Suzuki XL-7 VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CABLES NHTSA Campaign #03V512000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 05, 2003
    • Vehicles Affected: 196,876

    Summary: On certain sport utility vehicles, the accelerator cable casing cap that is attached to the vehicle firewall can crack due to extended exposure to forces from the accelerator cable and insufficient long-term durability of the plastic casing cap. If the casing cap becomes cracked, movement of the inner accelerator cable through the cap can cause the inner accelerator cable to become frayed.

    Consequence: If the inner accelerator cable becomes frayed, it can stick during vehicle operation. In the case where an accelerator cable sticks, the driver could have difficulty controlling vehicle speed, which could result in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the accelerator cable, which includes the plastic casing cap. Owner notification began on January 5, 2004. Owners should contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #03V512000 »
