Chevrolet India has announced to recall 101,597 units of Beat hatchback in diesel fuel trim in the country. The aforesaid number of Chevrolet Beat diesel were manufactured between December 2010 and July 2014 and they are being recalled to inspect and if necessary, replace the clutch pedal lever. The affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge at Chevrolet’s authorized service centers across the country.
The company has started voluntarily notifying owners of the Beat Diesel to take their cars to any of Chevrolet’s 248 authorized service centers across India. The clutch pedal lever in these units is susceptible to cracking on continued usage.
“Quality and care are our highest priorities and we are committed to putting customers at the center of everything we do. If we foresee a potential issue, we ensure that it is corrected as soon as possible, as part of our complete commitment to customer satisfaction,” General Motors India said in a statement.
Alternatively, customers can also contact their nearest Chevrolet dealership and schedule an appointment for vehicle inspection and correction. The company is working closely with their service network to make the entire inspection and correction exercise as smooth as possible. Just so you know, Chevrolet has confirmed to launch a sub 4-meter sedan based on the Beat hatchback in India in 2016, while the next-generation Beat hatch would also be launched next year.
