Suzuki is recalling nearly 26,000 midsize cars in the US because the daytime running light modules can overheat and could cause a fire.

The recall covers the Verona from the 2004-2006 model years. It's an expansion of an earlier recall of the Forenza and Reno.

All the cars were made by General Motors in Korea. Suzuki says in documents filed today with government safety regulators that a transistor in the modules can overheat in the instrument panel. That could melt the module, which could cause a fire. Suzuki says there were no fires reported in Verona models.

Dealers will replace the modules for free. Owners will be notified later. American Suzuki Motor Corp filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November of 2012 and stopped selling automobiles in the US.
