Launched earlier this year in March, the new Suzuki Access 125 automatic scooter has been recalled, stated the company in an official statement. The number of units affected are 54,740 units,
The affected units of Suzuki Access 125 were manufactured between March 8 and June 22, 2016. This means all units of Suzuki Access 125 which were sold since the time it was launched, have been affected by the latest recall.
The reason for recall, as stated by the company, is a faulty rear axle shaft. As there is no Govt agency which acts as a watchdog for manufacturing defects in India, the recall is a voluntary one. Suzuki says that the rear axle shaft will be replaced free of cost to all their customers of Access 125.
From today onwards, Suzuki will start notifying customers about the defect. Those customers who proactively report to the dealership, will be given free periodic maintenance service.
In a a statement released by the company, they said – “In pursuance of Suzuki’s commitment to customer satisfaction and as a matter of abundant precaution and safety, we have decided to undertake this service campaign on the New Access 125 scooters to address issues of rear axle/wheel stability that has been identified in some of these scooters.”
