India’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has decided to recall 11,177 units of its mid-sized sports utility vehicle Grand Vitara, manufactured between August 8, 2022 and November 15, 2022.
The affected lot has been recalled to fix a possible defect in the rear seat belt mounting brackets, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said in a regulatory filing.
The car maker said it is suspected that there is a possible defect in rear seat belt mounting brackets which in a rare case, may loosen in the long run and impact its functionality.
It further said that vehicle owners will be receiving communication from the company authorised dealer workshops for inspection and replacement of the affected parts, free of cost.
Earlier last week, the company recalled 17,362 units of models like Alto K10, Brezza, S-Presso, Eeco, Grand Vitara and Baleno to inspect and replace faulty airbag controllers.
The affected models were manufactured between December 8, 2022 and January 12, 2023.
