Suzuki has issued two separate recall notices for the 2017-19 Swift and Swift Sport, over concerns about an issue with the airbag controller.

According to the company, side airbags, curtain airbags and the seatbelt pretensioner could accidentally deploy when the rear doors are slammed shut because of incorrect software in the airbag controller.

There's a risk of injury to the car's occupants if the airbags fire inadvertently.

A total of 12,529 cars are included in the first campaign, while 1987 cars are included in the second one.

Suzuki will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealership.
