The popular Japanese automaker Honda’s Indian arm has announced a voluntary recall of 31,226 units of its Brio hatchback, as well as Amaze compact sedan which comes without the ABS option. Honda will be recalling the two models after it detected a possible defect in proportioning valve.


About 15,623 units of the Brio and 15,603 units of the Amaze are scheduled to be recalled. The proportioning valve is found in the brake system which reconciles brake distribution pressure to the wheels. It has been reported that the defect in question might be in the Amaze and Brio units which have been produced between February 28, 2013 and January 2014.

Meanwhile, the company did not get any complaints related to the defect. Honda has announced the recall in order to rule out any mis-assembly of the proportioning valve. Under the voluntary recall, the auto maker will be replacing the proportioning valve if there is a need for it after scrutinizing the vehicles.

The scrutinizing and replacement process will be held at Honda India dealerships all over the country. Customers will be notified about the recall and the replacement and repair will be done free of charge.
