Spiders force recall of midsize Suzuki cars

DETROIT – Spiders have forced Suzuki to recall more than 19,000 midsize cars.

The automaker said spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kizashi cars, cutting off air flow. If that happens, it can cause the gas tank to deform, causing cracks, fuel leaks and possible fires.

The recall was prompted by seven reports of the problem.

Service centers will replace the vent line with one that has a filter on the end. The company said in documents filed with safety regulators that the problem hasn’t caused any accidents or injuries in the U.S.

Owners will be notified this month.

American Suzuki Motor Corp. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2012 and stopped selling automobiles in the U.S.
