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.

The Recall Breakdown

  • The recall will start on 10/09/2015.
  • Suzuki dealers will replace the power steering pump with a newer and (hopefully) less faulty one.
  • The affected cars are from the 2012 and 2013 model years and were built between 09/03/2011 and 04/05/2013.

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
