Suzuki recalls nearly 26,000 cars made by GM; daytime running light module can catch fire

DETROIT - Suzuki is recalling nearly 26,000 midsize cars in the U.S. because the daytime running light modules can overheat and could cause a fire.

The recall covers the Verona from the 2004-2006 model years. It's an expansion of an earlier recall of the Forenza and Reno.

A spokesman for Suzuki Canada said it's aware of the U.S. recall and has notified Transport Canada. It said owners will be notified once the corrective action has been decided. About 1,105 of the Veronas were sold in Canada.

In the United States, dealers will replace the modules for free.

All the cars were made by General Motors in Korea. Suzuki says in documents filed Tuesday with government safety regulators that a transistor in the modules can overheat in the instrument panel. That could melt the module, which could cause a fire. Suzuki says there were no fires reported in Verona models.

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