Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) have issued a voluntary recall for the non-ABS variants of the Brio hatchback and Amaze petrol sedan in India due to a fault detected in the braking system. A total of 31,226 units of the Brio and petrol powered Amaze sedan have been affected by the said recall - all of which, were built between February 28, 2013 and January 16, 2014. 

Honda Cars India Ltd said in a statement that in some of these cars there is a mis-assembly of the Proportioning Valve, which is the part of the braking system and is responsible for adjusting brake distribution pressure to the wheels. HCIL will therefore, inspect such vehicles and if required, will replace the Proportioning Valve free of cost. The owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted individually in a phased manner. Since, the faulty Proportioning Valve is not part of the braking system for ABS variants, the latter are not subjected to inspection. 

Honda has created a special microsite on the company’s website, which would enable the customers to check whether their car will be covered under this inspection campaign. To check, customers will need to feed in the 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN.) In all, 15,623 units of the non-ABS variants of the Brio hatchback and 15,603 variants of the non-ABS variants of the petrol Amaze have been affected by the said recall.
