Suzuki has recalled its Swift and Swift Sport light cars in Australia this week, due to a possible brake fluid leak.

The carmaker has identified a weakness with brake caliper pistons, which may not be to specification as they may be smaller than the inner diameter of the cylinder.

Should this be the case, brake fluid may be allowed to leak past the piston.

A lack of brake fluid in the system could lead to reduced braking efficiency, or a failure of the braking system in extreme circumstances.

This could pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

A total of 1454 Swifts are affected in Australia, and Suzuki is targeting a varied range of Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs).

The recall process will involve the fitment of replacement parts where necessary.

Suzuki also recalled its S-Cross SUV recently, due to a potential problem with the side airbags.

S-Cross airbags mounted in the front seats may be restricted during inflation, if needed, as the seat stitching was incorrectly spaced during seat production.

Suzuki Australia will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
