Spiders force Suzuki to recall midsize cars

DETROIT (AP) - Spiders have forced Suzuki to recall more than 19,000 midsize cars.

The automaker says spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kizashi cars, cutting off air flow. If that happens, it can cause the gas tank to deform, causing cracks, fuel leaks and possible fires.

The recall was prompted by seven reports of the problem. Service centers will replace the vent line with one that has a filter on the end. They'll also replace gas tanks if necessary.

Suzuki says the problem hasn't caused any accidents or injuries in the U.S.

Owners will be notified this month. Those with questions can call Suzuki customer service at (800) 934-0934.
