Suzuki has served a legal notice to Volkswagen claiming that VW has reneged on a number of provisions that exist in the agreement that facilitated VW taking a 20% share in Suzuki while giving Suzuki a 1.5% share in itself. The alliance has been very uneasy and Suzuki approached Fiat for new engine technology. Osamu Suzuki also said that he wants to buy back the VW stake in Suzuki but VW have not been willing to oblige. Now Osamu Suzuki says that the agreement between Suzuki and VW envisaged transfer of technologies to Suzuki by VW and that has not happened. Therefore Suzuki claims that he wants his company’s shares back and that he will give back VW’s shares as well.
