The issue affects 184,000 vehicles, including:
Worried Forenza and Reno owners should contact Suzuki at 800-934-0934 and refer to recall XA. If you notice a burning smell or see smoke coming from the left side of the steering column, get the vehicle to a dealer, quick.More information on carcomplaints.com
