Why is Maruti recalling this top-selling car?
Maruti has been rolling out new products one after the other. However, a brand’s success does not lie in how many product it rolls out but rather how it maintains its entire lineup. Now, maintaining is not just about regular updates but also about rectifying any existing errors to enhance the product quality. And this is exactly what Maruti has done today. The brand has recalled one of its top-selling cars to rectify default in an important safety feature. What is this product? It is the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, but there is a CATCH. What is the error and whether you should be worried? Everything in this article.
Which Maruti top-seller is being recalled?
Maruti Suzuki is recalling some units (166 to be precise) of its very-popular Dzire sedan. This sedan has been enjoying a monopoly in its segment for many years now. Its popularity can be credited to the Maruti badge, the product reliability, the hassle-free ownership experience and the overall value-for-money quotient that it presents to the buyers. However, most buyers need not worry. Why, you ask? Because Maruti is recalling 166 units of the commercial variant, the Dzire Tour S and not the Dzire which sits in the passenger vehicle category. With that being said, the Tour S in itself is a top-seller for the brand in the commercial category.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire – Why a recall?
Now this is important. Maruti is recalling some units of the Dzire Tour S because of a suspected defect in the airbag control unit. This defect can result in malfunction during deployment in some cases. Maruti would definitely not be willing to take a chance when it comes to safety and is thus replacing this free of cost. This recall is limited to cars manufactured between 6th August and 16th August this year.
Maruti, as a precaution has also advised suspected owners to not drive the car until the replacement has been done. The brand would be communicating to the affected owners via its authorised service centres.
