Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest passenger automaker, has recalled two of its best selling models over security concerns. Reportely, the company has recalled 1279 units of its 2018 Swift and Dzire models over a possible glitch in the airbag controller unit. Out of the 1279 units , the Swift accounts for 566 units whereas Dzire, the sub-compact sedan, accounts for the remaining 713 units. All these 1279 units were manufactured in the period between 7 May 2018 and 5 July 2018.

How to check if your car is on the list?

In case you own any one or both the models, you can confirm by login to the Maruti Suzuki India’s official website and entering the respective cars chassis number. Chassis number can be found on the car’s registration/invoice papers or the ID Plate. One can also visit the authorized service centers in the area to confirm the same. As part of the campaign, car owners can visit their nearest service centers to confirm any faults in the airbag controller unit. If confirmed, the company will rectify the fault free of any charge.

The recalls are a part of the company’s efforts to avoid any malfunctioning of the vehicles due to faulty parts. This would check any undue mishap or accidents.

This is not the first time that Maruti Suzuki has recalled units over fault issues. Reportedly, the company had recalled 52,686 units of the new Maruti Swift and the Baleno earlier this year to fix the brake vacuum hose. Notedly among the recalled units at that time, 44,982 units were of the new Swift.
