Maruti Suzuki has issued a recall for the Maruti Swift, Maruti Swift Dzire and Maruti Ertiga. This is the second time these cars are being recalled as in November last year, the same models were called back for a faulty steering column.
This time around, the recall affects the fuel filler neck of these cars. When fuel is filled up to the fuel cap beyond the auto cutoff level, there exists a possibility of a fuel leak, the company said in a statement.
The affected vehicles (42,481 units of Dzire, 47,237 units of Swift and 13,593 units of Ertiga) were made between 12th November 2013 and 4th February 2014. In all, 103,311 units are affected. Owners of these cars will be contacted by Maruti dealers and the faulty part will be replaced free of cost. Maruti says that the component is being dispatched to dealer workshops from yesterday.
Customers can use Maruti’s website to check if their car is part of the recall. By entering the chassis number of your car, the website can tell you whether or not your car is affected.
