WASHINGTON — American Suzuki is recalling 2,830 2007 Suzuki XL7s to fix a fuel leak that may result in a fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected XL7s were originally sold or are currently registered in Arizona, California, Nevada and Texas. The company noted that the defect is more prevalent in hot-weather states.

"Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, which could cause a fuel leak," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire."

American Suzuki told federal safety regulators that the customer may notice a fuel odor while the vehicle is being driven or after it is parked. If the crack becomes large enough, fuel may be observed dripping onto the ground and vehicle performance may be affected.

Suzuki dealers will replace the fuel pump module. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact American Suzuki at (714) 996-7040.

Edmunds says: If you own a 2007 Suzuki XL7 and notice a fuel odor or see fuel dripping onto the ground, you'll want to consult your dealer immediately instead of waiting for a recall notice.
