The country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki may recall 1.5 lakh units of the Swift Dzire sedan due to an issue with the fuel filler. The affected vehicles sedans have been manufactured between 2013 and 2014 and will see a replacement for the fuel neck filler.
The 2012 launched compact sedan is our country's second-largest selling car and this recall almost equals its annual production. The supplier for the faulty component is JBM, in which the auto major itself owns 29.28 percent stake.
“Out of the 1.5 lakh units affected under the recall, some are still in the dealerships. The supplier has already been informed of the defect and has started making the replacement parts,” the industry report from Financial Express said.
This is not the first time that manufacturer has made a recall– last year 1,492 units of the Dzire, Swift, Ertiga and A-Star were recalled due to a problem with the steering column. And in February 2010, over 1 lakh units of the A-Star were recalled to replace a faulty fuel pump gasket.
