The automaker informed that it will be recalling more than 42,000 units of the DZire compact sedan, more than 47,000 units of its Swift hatchback, as well as more than 13,000 units of Ertiga, its multi-passenger vehicle. Maruti Suzuki India released a statement on April 11, 2014 which said, “This exercise is limited to vehicles within the above specified range and does not pertain to any other vehicle of the company”.

The upcoming recall by Maruti Suzuki was confirmed following media reports which said that fuel tank neck pipe was faulty and that it had affected a big number of vehicles. The current problem can lead to fuel smell and fuel spilling in extreme cases. Maruti Suzuki also admitted that there is a possibility of fuel leakage if the vehicle is filled up to the cap.

The company’s dealers have been informed by the auto giant to contact owners of the affected vehicles. The dealers will be replacing the defective part free of cost.
