Maruti silently replacing steering assembly in 2017 Maruti Dzire – Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Deliveries halted till the cars get the new steering assembly.

According to Team-BHP, Maruti is replacing the electric steering assembly of the 2017 Maruti Dzire sold thus far. Deliveries of new examples are currently halted across all dealerships till the steering assembly has been replaced, and Maruti could issue a recall to customers who have already taken delivery of the Dzire.

Manufacturers issue recalls to replace items that may have a chance of being defective and may cause a safety issue.

Manufacturers in India now openly issue recalls to replace suspected items that may have a chance of being ineffective or defective. In the case of the Dzire, all units in the factory are also being equipped with the new steering assembly, before heading to their respective dealerships, reports Team-BHP.

The new Dzire was launched last month at prices ranging between INR 5.45 lakh and INR 9.41 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). So far, Maruti has received well over 44,000 bookings for the Dzire since they were open several days before the launch.
