Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest carmaker, has announced to voluntarily recall a total of 75,419 units of the Baleno that were manufactured between August 3, 2015 and May 17, 2016.
The recall is due to some issue with the airbag controller software, which needs an update in both the petrol and diesel models of the premium hatchback. Moreover, 15,995 Maruti Baleno diesel units will also go through an inspection and replacement of a faulty fuel filter.
Of the total units being recalled, 17,231 export units too are included. In addition to these, the company will also call 1961 Swift Dzire AGS diesel units to inspect and replace a faulty fuel filter. Earlier this month, the company had also announced to undertake a service campaign for the S-Cross to replace faulty brake part.
Maruti Suzuki dealers will start contacting the affected customers from the end of this month, and the software upgrade and the replacement of the fuel filter will be done at no cost. Customers can either contact their dealership or check out the Nexa website (www.nexaexperience.com) for the Baleno and www.marutisuzuki.com to fill in the chassis number on the screen. The chassis number (MA3 followed by 14 digit number) of the vehicle can be found on the vehicle ID plate and in the vehicle invoice documents.
