RICHMOND HILL, Ont. - Suzuki Canada says it plans to stop selling automobiles in Canada after the 2014 model year.

However, the company says it will fully honour all product warranties and will ask current dealers to become warranty and service points as they transition out of the Suzuki auto business.

Suzuki says it plans to focus on motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle sales as well as its marine division.

The announcement on Tuesday came a little more than four months after Suzuki Canada said it was "business as usual" north of the border despite a decision by its counterpart in the United States to get out of the auto sales business and seek court protection from creditors while it refocused on other products.

Although Suzuki Canada will exit the auto sales business, the company says it isn't entering a court-supervised restructuring in this country.

The auto division sold about 5,500 units in Canada last year.
