Maruti Suzuki Recalls 17362 Vehicles Due To Faulty Airbags

Maruti Suzuki has announced a recall of 17,000 vehicles produced between December 8, 2022 and January 12, 2023. The recall is necessary due to an issue with the airbag controller installed in the Alto K10, S Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno, and Grand Vitara models. Owners of these vehicles are advised to contact Maruti Suzuki to arrange for repair or replacement.

Maruti Suzuki recently announced in a filing with BSE that it will recall 17,362 of its cars and SUVs for inspection and replacement of their airbag control units. This recall is being done free of charge due to the potential risk that the faulty part may lead to the non-deployment of airbags and seat belt pretensioners in the event of an accident. The brand has warned customers not to drive or use their vehicles until they have been contacted by the workshop and the part has been replaced.

Similarly, last month, Maruti Suzuki recalled over 9,000 units of the Grand Vitara, XL6, Ertiga, and Ciaz due to a possible defect in the child parts of the front seat belt’s shoulder height adjuster assembly. Maruti Suzuki is taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of their customers and rectify the issues at hand. In line with this, the company is offering to inspect and replace the defective parts at no additional cost.
