News: Maruti Suzuki Recall 9000 Vehicles
Maruti Suzuki India is making headlines since it has issued a recall for over 9000 vehicles. That is around 9,125 of its cars to fix the defects in the seat belts. The cars also include the newly launched Grand Vitara SUV, the Maruti Brezza, Ertiga & XL6, to name a few. In a regulatory filing, Maruti Suzuki India said that all the recalled vehicles were manufactured between November 2 and November 28, 2022.
The company said that they have suspected a possible defect in one of the child parts of the shoulder height adjuster of the front row seat belts. Which has a further possibility leading to the seat belt disassembly.
Further, the company decided to recall the suspected vehicles for a quick inspection. Further, they will replace the faulty part for absolutely free of cost. Moreover, the affected vehicle owners will be communicated about the processes on time from the company’s authorized workshops with immediate effect.
To top it all, the company – Maruti Suzuki India has been making headlines because this is not the first official recall from the company this year! The automaker had issued a recall earlier in the month of October. The earlier recall was for about 9,925 vehicle units. That included car models like the WagonR and Celerio, to name a few. The previous recall was made in line with the fault in the rear brake assembly pin.
Furthermore, the company had also recalled 19,731 units in the month of April this year. The recall included the units of the Eeco MPVs that had an incorrect marking of the wheel’s rim size!
Thus, bringing in the third recall of the year may or may not affect the credibility of the company at large. However, all things considered, Maruti Suzuki surely stands strong and aces the competitor list. Further, making it one of the best-in-segment automakers of the country!
