Maruti Suzuki India has announced a voluntary recall exercise under the “Service Campaign” for the new-generation Dzire compact sedan. The cars in question were manufactured between February 23 and July 10, 2017. The reason for the recall is said to be the fault related to the rear wheel hub. The recall will include around 21,494 units of the new Dzire.
The inspection and replacement of the affected parts will be done by authorised MSI service centres free of cost. The carmaker has already begun contacting perspective customers.
