I told her that it was impossible since I received letters for both the fuel tank and the passenger seat in 2019/2020. She asked me to send her pictures of the letters, which I apparently no longer have. I called the Suzuki's office and got the same speech. They couldn't even check if they sent me letters. Looks like the car is gonna remain this way I guess.
Since recalls are done with some sort of collaboration with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), I think it’s possible to enter your VIN on their website to see what recall work your car has undergone or needs. The Suzuki service centers use a similar system where you tell them your VIN and they can tell you which recalls you still need done. At least that’s what happened when I made my appointment. I’ll go check the NHTSA site momentarily.
If you haven’t done the fuel tank recall, the notices will pile up lol. Before I went in for my fix, I had like at least three of the postcards, plus at least one full-sized form. The seat recall is very recent however, so a second notice may be just around the corner. I’m not sure if they send them out to everyone at once or randomly, however.
Edit: okay you can enter the VIN but the site says the lookup won’t tell you about repaired vehicles. When I tried my number it didn’t seem to work on my phone. I may try on a computer later.
Also apparently there’s a recall for the transmission control module in 2013 CVT Kizashis? It was issued like a month after I got my car but I never received a notice and my service advisor never mentioned it when he looked my VIN up. Hmm.
