We've known for some time that Suzuki
hasn't been happy with their relationship with Volkswagen
. For those who don't know, back in 2009, Suzuki and Volkswagen entered into a partnership where the latter bought a 19.9 percent interest in the small Japanese automaker. In return, Suzuki was given just a 1.49 percent stake in the German automaker giant. Although the numbers sound a little off, the idea was for Suzuki to have some access to various VW hybrid and other technologies.
