A fault with the windshield could cause the compact off-roader to leak, according to the manufacturer.

Suzuki Australia has recalled 13 examples of its 2020 Jimny SUV, citing the potential for water leakage through the windshield.

The affected vehicles were sold between 1 September 2020 and 1 March 2021 (Model Year 2020).

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “The bond primer applied to the windshield glass and the rear door window glass may have been incorrectly applied to the glass.”

“The bond primer may not adhere to the glass, water can leak into the cabin and the glass may detach from the vehicle – this could result in the glass becoming airborne or falling on to the road, increasing the risk of serious injury or death of other road users,” the notice continues.

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