Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL) has notified in a regulatory filing that the company has recalled 9,125 units of its five models – Grand Vitara, XL6, Brezza, Ertiga and Ciaz – due to a possible defect.

The defect is suspected in one of the child parts of the shoulder height-adjuster assembly of the front-row seat belts, the company said in its statement to the BSE.

“In a rare case, this may lead to seat belt disassembly,” it further added. “Considering the safety of our customers and out of abundant caution, MSIL has decided to recall the suspected vehicles for inspection and replacement of the faulty part, free of cost,” it said.

Cars of the above mentioned Maruti Suzuki model type which are manufactured between November 2 and 28, 2022 are part of this voluntary recall by the company. Affected owners will receive communication from its authorised workshops for immediate attention, the carmaker has reassured.
