Suzuki has suspended all sales of the Celerio and has issued a full product recall, advising customers not to drive the model.
The recall comes after two vehicles suffered from complete braking failure during road tests carried out by Autocar, last week – the cause of which is currently being investigated by Suzuki.
As a direct result of this investigation and with immediate effect, Suzuki is recalling its UK Celerio models that went on official sale to the public yesterday.
This safety recall relates to retraction of the brake pedal and affects right hand drive vehicles for UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. It does not affect left hand drive vehicles or other right hand drive markets.
Suzuki is directly contacting its customers via its dealer network and will be providing a loan vehicle to them until full safety checks have been completed.
An update is to follow when available.
