As Murcod wrote, it looks like the yellow sac spider is found all over the world.
Below is the link to the wiki page on this spider and it explicitly states that this spider genus is found in parts of British Columbia, Canada. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheiracanthium
They are found in just about every market in which members from this forum hail from so looks like we should all be somewhat concerned about these possible arachnid passengers in our Kizashis.
In fact, I think I've seen one running around my dash not too long ago. I didn't mind it as I don't fear nor kill spiders, but it looked quite like the description of the spider in the wiki page. Maybe he was looking to get high off of gas fumes.
I'm trying to find a recall notice online for us non-original owners to reference at the dealer, much like what I did with the rear shock TSB.
All I can find is the Canadian notice that's found in Bootymac's first post which actually looks like a government PSA and not even something from Suzuki themselves.
