Cars get recalled all the time. Whether that be a slight manufacturing defect, or false statements regarding emissions.
However, never do you see a manufacturer issue a recall on a single car that was made in 1996. The 1996 Suzuki Cappuccino was recalled due to a missing stamp after a test carried out at Suzuki. Rather than contacting the owner of the car, they issued a standard recall, which is usually what we see when 1000’s of cars are affected, not just one. It’s worth mentioning, the ‘defect’ literally has no impact on the performance of the car. It is literally a stamp as you can see in the image below that was released by Suzuki.
You may think that this is just a major and unnecessary inconvenience for the owner, but rather than Suzuki bringing the car in to get a the current engine stamped, instead they are planning to just replace the engine for a brand new one, which luckily the engine is still made and used in the Suzuki Jimny and some Caterham 7’s.
