GM India issues recall for Chevrolet Sail U-VA and sedan

Posted on: Sep 3, 2013 - 9:00am IST

General Motors India has issued a voluntary recall for the diesel variants of the Chevrolet Sail U-VA and sedan. About 4,000 units of the Sail twins will be recalled to address a “potential engine issue which is not safety related”.

Regular Indian Autos Blog readers may remember that the American car maker halted the production of the diesel powered Sail twins in early June this year owing to some quality issues with the Smartech diesel engine. Dealers were asked to stop taking bookings for these cars as well.

Economic Times reports that the production of the diesel powered Sails has restarted and so has the sales, now that the company has identified a fix for the solution. GM India is now in the process of notifying its affected Sail customers individually as to how and when to bring their vehicles for inspection. The repair, which is being carried out across 278 service centers across the country, will be at no cost to the owners.

    It’s great that they look for ‘Complete commitment to customer satisfaction’… but unfortunately recalls in initial stages of launch…and discounts/schemes in early stages…creates a dent to the image of the twins…recalls coupled with tavera’s problem has added fuel to fire…my expectations from these twins were decent but i read some experts saying that maruti stands for tension free car brand, hyundai stands for value for money styling/features… but GM doesn’t have USP in its brand identity…i am a fan of their 164bhp diesel rocket…and wish GM could do wonders in India…they do awesome in china…what’s the problem in Indian markets…
