Suzuki Australia has recalled 163 examples of its 2020 Ignis SUV, citing a potential fault with the fuel tank.

The affected vehicles were sold between 1 July 2020 and 30 October 2020 (Model Year 2020).

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “The fuel tank breather pipe may have been incorrectly moulded to the top of the fuel tank. The breather pipe may become detached by normal vibration of the vehicle.”

“If [the] breather pipe becomes detached and fuel leaks in the presence of an ignition source, this may cause a fire increasing the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users,” the notice continues.

A spokesperson for Suzuki Australia told CarAdvice there have been no locally recorded instances of the fault, and this recall is purely precautionary.
