In what can be termed as one of the largest recall to date in India, General Motors India is recalling 1,55,000 units of Chevrolet Spark, Beat and Enjoy. These affected cars are produced during the period 2007 and 2014. General Motors recall was announced on Monday.
The specified models were noted to have defective wiring causing constraints to remote keyless entry, a gadget that allows users to open their cars without a key. The facility conforms to all standard regulations but GM India received complaints that in some cases this was found to be faulty. GM has located the problem in the wiring that could hamper smooth functioning of the accessory, causing many users to be locked out of their cars.
Owners of these cars, purchased during the period, are being contacted to bring in their vehicles to company service dealers who have also been instructed to rectify the problem free of cost to customer. The company has also requested customers who have concerns regarding performance of remote keyless entry accessory to visit their nearest Chevrolet dealer for a free inspection.
This new recall from GM India surpasses their previous huge recall, which was announced in 2013. At that time, the US headquartered company had recalled 1.14 lakh units of Tavera SUVs over emission issues.
