Maruti Suzuki Recalls 17000 Units Due to a Faulty Airbag Controller

Maruti Suzuki is recalling 17,362 vehicles that were produced between December 8, 2022, and January 12, 2023. Maruti Alto K10, S-Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno, and Grand Vitara are some of the affected vehicles.

These vehicles contain a malfunctioning airbag controller. The airbag control unit will be recalled, checked, and replaced without charge by the OEM. In the event of a collision, this defective component could prevent the airbags and seat belt pretensioners from deploying.

Additionally, Maruti Suzuki has advised the owners not to drive the impacted vehicles until the problematic part has been replaced. The automaker will get in touch with each owner separately.

“The Airbag Controller (the “affected part”) in these cars will be inspected and replaced, if necessary, as part of the recall. It is believed that the component in question may have a flaw that, in extremely rare circumstances, could prevent the airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners from deploying in the event of a collision” The business declared in a statement.

Customers of the suspected vehicles are warned not to drive or use them until the harmed part has been replaced, according to the business. Owners of impacted vehicles will be contacted by Maruti Suzuki-approved establishments for prompt attention.

You should personally contact the dealership and have your car checked if you own a Maruti Alto K10, S-Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno, or Grand Vitara and believe your vehicle was constructed between 8 December 2022 and 12 January 2023 but have not been contacted.

A recall for the Grand Vitara, XL6, Ertiga, and Ciaz was also made public by Maruti a few days ago due to a defective kid part in the assembly that adjusts the shoulder height of seat belts.

A few months ago, they also conducted a recall on the Wagon R, Ignis, and Celerio to address a problem with the rear brake assembly pins.

The firm announced in December of last year that it would increase car prices to counteract the effects of growing input costs and make plans to upgrade the model range in order to comply with tighter emission standards that will take effect in April 2023.

“A weighted average increase across models is predicted to be roughly 1.1%. This illustrative amount was determined using Delhi model ex-showroom prices, and it will be effective as of January 16, 2023” In a legal filing, Maruti Suzuki India made a statement.

From the entry-level little car Alto to the SUV Grand Vitara, which ranges in price from 3.39 lakh to 19.49 lakh, the company sells a variety of automobiles.

According to previous reports, the automaker recalled 9,125 vehicles in December due to flaws in a portion of the front row seat belts after recalling about 5000 vehicles for defective seat belts in September of last year. Additionally, the automaker had recalled over 19,000 XUV700 and Scorpio-N models to remedy a rubber component.
