Though Suzuki has long since left the United States automobile market — having better luck selling Hayabusas and boat engines — its partnership with General Motors has not quite given up the ghost, thanks to a defect related to a couple of their last offerings.

Reuters reports Suzuki has recalled 184,244 2004 through 2008 Forenzas and Renos affected by a defect in the daytime running light module that could lead to overheating and fire. The defect is also at the heart of a global recall issued last week by GM of 284,000 Chevrolet Aveos/Suzuki Swift+ et al, the majority — 218,000 — in the United States.

The fix for the module is in development, and a second notification will be sent by the automaker to affected owners when the fix is ready; Suzuki still offers warranty repairs and other services related to its last U.S. automotive offerings.
