Maruti Suzuki recalls over 17,000 cars due to faulty airbags

India's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki on Wednesday recalled 17,362 cars due to a defect in the airbag controller.  

As per a company statement, the affected models are Alto K10, S-Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno and Grand Vitara manufactured between December 8 and January 12.

"The recall is being undertaken to inspect and replace Airbag Controller (“affected part”), free of cost, if required in these vehicles" the company said in a statement. 

Maruti Suzuki further said that it is suspected that there is a possible defect in affected part, which in rare case might result in non-deployment of the airbags and seat belt pretensioners, in the event of a vehicle crash. 

"Out of abundant caution, customers of the suspected vehicles are advised not to drive or use the vehicle till the affected part is replaced," the company mentioned. 

Affected vehicle owners will be receiving communication from Maruti Suzuki authorized workshops for immediate attention, the carmaker added.
