Wagon R recall in Japan


Suzuki Motor Corp will recall about 227,000 WagonR minivehicles and other cars in Japan for two separate defects, according to a filing with the transport ministry on Thursday.

In one of the recalls, a defective door latch could cause the rear doors to open while driving in the worst case scenario. Subject to that recall are seven models, including the Mazda Motor Corp AZ Wagon and another Nissan Motor Co model, spanning 177,692 cars.

The second recall covers two models totalling 49,122 units that have hub caps that are too big for the wheels.

There was no report of accidents related to the defects, and the recalls are limited to Japan, Suzuki said in the filing.
