Maruti Suzuki the largest car manufacturer in India has today announced its largest-ever recall concerning 1,81,754 units that may have been affected by a defect. More specifically this defect will be affecting the car which are manufactured between the period of 4th May 2018 to 27th October 2020 and the models which will be recalled are the petrol variants of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Ertiga, Vitara Brezza, S-Cross and XL6.
This recall won’t only affect the domestically sold cars but also on a global level to rectify any possibility of a defect in the safety of the owner.
This isn’t the first time that companies have recalled their cars for a possible defect, earlier Mahindra recalled its vehicle twice this year as the first time for camshaft defect in Thar then a couple of months back Mahindra recalled over 600 vehicles for a possible defect. Even the world’s biggest car company Toyota isn’t untouched by it, as in March Toyota recalled its Urban cruisers for an Airbag defect.
Coming back to Maruti’s recall, in the interest of customers the carmaker has decided to voluntarily recall the affected vehicles for inspection or if needed then replacement of the faulty Motor Generator unit. This means that Maruti Authorized dealership itself will contact you if your car comes in the above-mentioned category and the repair or replacement will not cost even a penny to the customers.
Maruti will start the replacements starting from 1st November 2021. However, till then the company has also advised the customers to avoid going into any water-logged streets and to also avoid direct water spray on any electrical or electronic parts in the vehicle as this may lead to amplifying the fault.
