Maruti Suzuki, India's largest car manufacturer company, on Wednesday said it recalling nerly 1,279 units of the newly launched hatchback Swift, and compact sedan Dzire. The "voluntary" recall is being done to check and fix possible fault in the airbag system.
A Maruti Suzuki spokesperson said that 1279 vehicles (566 new Swift and 713 new Dzire) manufactured between 7th May 2018 and 5th July 2018 have been identified for the recall.
Inspection and replacement of the faulty part, if any, will be provided by the company free of cost, the spokesperson added. The company will start contacting the affected customers from July 25.
This is for the second time in three months that Maruti Suzuki has announced a recall of its models. In May, over 50,000 models of Swift and Baleno were inspected by the company for a possible fault in brake vacuum hose.
