Honda Cars India will inspect the proportioning valve of select units of the Honda Brio and Honda Amaze. The company said in a statement that it would carry out inspections on 15,623 units of the Brio and 15,603 units of the Amaze. The cars were manufactured between 28 February 2013 – 16 January 2014.

Non-ABS variants of the Honda Brio and Honda Amaze Petrol manufactured between the specified dates will be inspected.

Only the non-ABS variants of the Brio and Amaze will be called in for inspection. In case of the Amaze, this does not affect the diesel variant as ABS is part of standard equipment.

The proportioning valve is the part of brake system which adjusts brake distribution pressure to the wheels. Proportioning valve is not a part of braking system for ABS variants, Honda said. In some of these cars, there exists a possibility of mis-assembly of the proportioning valve. The inspection and replacement will be carried out free of cost at dealerships across India.

Customers will be contacted in a phased manner and a microsite on Honda India’s website allows owners to check if their car requires inspection.

    All manufacturers are similar in India. I had a bad experience with Maruti when I had Swift and I have to fight a lot to change the rear right arm, which had a manufacturing defect. They argued that arm got bend due to my bad driving and/or some stone might have hit. This came out after we changed the rear brake shoes. After Delhi tech team intervention, the dealer changed it.
    If you remember, there was a recall of City Zx over the power window switches. When I asked them in one of the service, they told it was not required my car and they gave some serial numbers, my car was not part of it.
    Later my kid noticed that the rear power window switch has changed (it was broken) along with one of the major service and noticed the change details mentioned in the log. But I didn’t ask them why you told earlier the switches not needed to change earlier. No idea why they hide it at the first time.
