Japanese automaker Suzuki Motor Corp. is recalling 1.6 million vehicles for problems with the air conditioning that can cause the engine to stall. The automaker said air conditioner compressors in certain vehicles can overheat and stop because they lack the oil necessary to keep them lubricated. If that happens, the vehicles’ engines can fail as they decelerate, according to Chinese news outlet Xinhua. Five models of vehicles produced between January 2008 and May 2015 are affected by the recall, including the Wagon R. Suzuki has received more than 240 reports since 2011 in which engines stalled because of a lack of lubrication, though no accidents or injuries have occurred as a result, Xinhua said. The report added that the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has called this the third-largest recall of its kind.
