The recall is part of a global program to fix a potential problem with a retainer clip securing the gear selector cable.
The recall only applies to the models equipped with manual transmission.
Suzuki will implement a safety recall campaign to replace the retainer clip following some reports of failure, which led to the manual gear selector malfunctioning.
In the case where first gear is selected rapidly with a high degree of force, the retaining clip may strike the gear selector housing bracket and could ultimately dislodge or break.
The replacement clip is of a different design that will not strike the bracket under these conditions.
Suzuki Motor Corporation rectified this issue in production recently.
Suzuki in Australia will replace the retainer clips on the 3519 affected Lianas built between January 2001 and January 2006. Suzuki is notifying owners affected by the problem and urged customers to contact their nearest authorised Suzuki dealer promptly after receiving their proper recall notification advice.
Replacing the clip will take about 20 minutes and is free.
The Suzuki Liana is the only vehicle affected by this recall in Australia.
