New Delhi- The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India on Monday said it is recalling 87,599 units of S-Presso and Eeco models to check and replace faulty steering tie rod.
The recalled units were manufactured between July 5, 2021, and February 15, 2023, the auto major said in a statement.
“It is suspected that there is a possible defect in a part of steering tie rod, used in such vehicles, which in a rare case, may break and affect vehicle steerability and handling,” it noted.
Affected vehicle owners will be receiving communication from the company-authorised dealer workshops for inspection and replacement of the faulty part, free of cost, Maruti Suzuki stated.
The recall is effective from July 24, 2023, 06:30 pm onwards, it said.
