WASHINGTON - American Suzuki Motor Corp. is recalling more than 5,100 MY 2010 Kizashi passenger vehicles manufactured from Oct. 13, 2009 through May 31, 2010. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the hinged door of the center lower box located in the front dashboard area fails to conform to federal safety requirements. The door may open in a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the vehicle's occupants. 

Suzuki will notify affected vehicle owners of the recall. Dealers will replace the instrument panel center lower box with a new part. There will be no charge for the replacement. 

The safety recall is expected to begin around July 9. Affected vehicle owners can reach Suzuki at (714) 996-7040.
