Before the fiasco of the Tavera could die down, GM has once again hit a huge roadblock, now has to call back the Sail series of cars because there are technical glitches to be taken care of. A few months ago the brand admitted to the government in a letter saying that, they had dishonored the testing norms while sending the MPV for scrutiny. Now the same Chevrolet is scheduled to retract all the Sail hatchbacks and sedans, but has not officially come to a final pronouncement. Chevrolet currently is concentrating towards rectifying quality issues and emission concerns, so that they won't have to call back any future cars that leave the facility.
The major problem seems to be in the engine quality part, because of that the brand halted the production of the Sail series since 3rd June, but later restarted it. The company is planning to call back nearly 4000 units. The last call made for the Tavera had disastrous outcomes, with 25 top executives being fired from the job, for ignorance. Chevrolet has stressed on the fact that, the problem is definitely not safety related, so that means the customers need not worry about their wellbeing. The problem is only with the diesel versions of the Sail, wherein the Sail U-VA came to the market in November 2012 and was followed by the notchback in February 2013.
This particular diesel engine is not new to the Indian market, it is the same 1.3 liter block that currently runs Maruti Suzuki Swift’s siblings. So when the callback is made official, the work will be done in all of the 278 service centers of the brand, and of course will be fixed at no cost to the owners. The vice president of corporate affairs of GM (General Motors), Mr. P. Balendran said that, Chevrolet customers are quite frankly the heart of the business, whatever the company does is based on them. As everybody knows, quality is Chevrolet’s first priority. So if there should be any problems with that from the production end, Chevrolet will most certainly rectify it as soon as one possibly could.
