Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest car maker, said it would recall nearly 3,800 units of Ciaz to check a suspected fault in the vehicle’s clutch operation system.
Launched in October this year, Ciaz the mid-sized sedan competing against the segment best-seller Honda City had received a healthy response from the customers which pushed it to the second spot beating Hyundai’s Verna.
The Ciaz recall, which can potentially cause inconvenience to its owners, comes just two months after the car market leader announced a recall of 69,555 units of Dzire, Swift and Ritz in September to repair a wiring harness fitment.
The Delhi-based company said in a filing: “Maruti Suzuki India will proactively undertake a service campaign to inspect a suspected fault and replace the relevant part of the clutch operation system of a batch of 3,796 Ciaz (manual transmission) cars. These are among those manufactured till November 7.”
Only last month US auto major Ford announced a recall of 3,072 Ford Fiestas in India to install a waterproof glow plug control module free of charge.
The inspection and replacement will be done free of cost to the customer, MSIL added.
