Suzuki working on Celerio brake fix

Suzuki has announced it is working on a replacement part design for the brake system on its new Celerio city car, after the car had to be recalled last week.

Following a loss of braking experienced when carrying out an emergency braking test from high speed by Autocar magazine on a private road test facility on January 30, Suzuki carried out an immediate investigation into the cause.

A rectification by Suzuki Motor Corporation is currently being implemented and delivery of modified brake components is expected in the coming weeks.

Customers who had already taken delivery will be kept in courtesy cars until their cars are returned, though new cars will not be delivered until the modified components are fitted.
