Suzuki is recalling the power steering pumps in 18,600 SX4 cars. The pumps have multiple problems that can eventually lead to their failure. They don't have enough clearance from the surrounding pump body. They don't do well when parked in cold weather. And they really hate when you accelerate with the steering wheel turned all the way to the left or right.
For all the specifics on how they break down you can visit our site, but the bottom line is this -- they will stop working. And when that happens it will be up to you to turn the car. The SX4 is small, but it still has a curb weight of around 2,900lbs so I hope you've been working out.
