Maruti recalls 52686 units of Baleno, Swift models for faulty break vaccum hose

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Tuesday said it is asking customers of 52,686 new Swift and Baleno models to undertake a service campaign to inspect for a possible fault in brake vacuum hose.

The campaign will affect Swift and Baleno manufactured between December 1, 2017 and March 16, 2018.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by dealers for inspection and replacement of the faulty part, starting May 14, 2018. “Service campaigns are undertaken globally by automobile companies to rectify faults that may potentially cause inconvenience to customers,” the company said in a statement. Brake vacuum hose is a rubber pipe that creates and releases vacuum while applying brake but it has no impact on braking and braking distance.

A company official said the exercise did not amount to a recall as the issue did not relate to safety. Service campaigns are undertaken globally by automobile companies to rectify faults that may potentially cause inconvenience to customers, the company said.

Customers will be contacted by dealers for inspection and replacement of the faulty part and the inspection and replacemnet will be done free of cost, MSI added.
