Maruti to recall Swift DZire over faulty fuel neck filter
India’s largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki will soon announce the biggest ever auto-recall for a single model – Swift DZire compact sedan. The reason for reason is a faulty fuel neck filter which has been manufactured by a company named JBM, in which Maruti Suzuki India has a stake of 29.28%.
Maruti Swift DZire is the best selling sedan in the country. Launched about 6 years ago, the new generation Swift Dzire clocks about 15,000+ average monthly sales. Maruti is yet to notify their customers about this recall in which the cars affected were manufactured in 2013 and 2014, reveals Financial Express.
The problem was notified very recently, and is yet to be officially announced by the manufacturer. Some of the DZire with defective fuel neck filter are yet to be sold, and are still lying at the Maruti Suzuki dealerships across India.
Over the years, Maruti Suzuki has been an active manufacturer, who has proactively put forth customer safety first by issuing recalls for faulty parts. Their last major recall came in February 2010 when they recalled A Star for faulty fuel pump gasket. Their more recent recall was in November 2013, when they recalled 1,492 units of Swift Dzire, Ertiga, Swift and A-Star.
