In a statement, it said that the vehicles manufactured between 08th December, 2022 and 12th January, 2023 have been recalled. The affected models are Alto K10, S-Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno and Grand Vitara.
“The recall is being undertaken to inspect and replace Airbag Controller (“affected part”), free of cost, if required in these vehicles,” it said in an announcement.
“It is suspected that there is a possible defect in affected part, which in rare case might result in non-deployment of the airbags and seat belt pretensioners, in the event of a vehicle crash. Out of abundant caution, customers of the suspected vehicles are advised not to drive or use the vehicle till the affected part is replaced,” the announcement further added.
Affected vehicle owners will be receiving communication from Maruti Suzuki authorized workshops for immediate attention.
Last September, the car maker had recalled around 5000 vehicles for faulty seatbelts and in December it had recalled 9,125 units for defects in a part of the front row seat belts.
