Chevrolet India has announced a voluntarily recall of around 1.55 Lakh vehicles in the country. The vehicles affected by this recall are Spark, Beat and Enjoy, which were manufactured between 2007 and 2014. They are being recalled due to a remote keyless entry accessory issue. All these affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge at the company's 257 service centers across the country.
“Quality is our highest priority and we are committed to putting customers at the center of everything we do,” said Arvind Saxena, President and Managing Director, General Motors India. “If there is a potential issue, we ensure that it is corrected as soon as possible as part of our complete commitment to customer satisfaction.” The company is notifying customers individually about the recall and also, how and when to bring in their vehicles for inspection and correction. Also, customers can contact their nearest Chevrolet dealership and schedule an appointment for vehicle inspection and correction.
"The remote keyless entry accessory meets all the relevant regulatory standards; however, GM India has been made aware of some isolated cases where certain Chevrolet Spark, Beat and Enjoy vehicles were fitted with a faulty accessory," the company said in a statement. An official at the company added that the company had found a potential wiring fault which could make the accessory malfunction and lock customers out. Just so you know, Chevrolet would launch the Trailblazer SUV this year in India, as it has been spied several times as test mule. Furthermore, the company would introduce the Spin MPV in 2016 in the country to further consolidate its position in the Indian market.
