Maruti Suzuki recalls over 77,000 DZire, Baleno cars
In its largest-ever recall, Maruti Suzuki called back over 77,000 of its top selling cars — Baleno and Swift DZire — for faulty airbag controllers and fuel filters.

Maruti Suzuki India said in a statement it was recalling 75,419 Baleno cars, both petrol and diesel versions manufactured between August 3, 2015 and May 17, 2016, to upgrade the airbag controller software.

Of these, 15,995 Baleno cars (only diesel), manufactured between August 3, 2015 and March 22, 2016, will also be called back for inspection and replacement of a faulty fuel filter, it said.

“Starting May 31, owners of the vehicles covered will be contacted by Maruti Suzuki dealers. The software upgrade and the replacement of faulty fuel filters will be done free of cost,” the company said.

To ascertain if their vehicle is covered, owners may check at www.nexaexperience.com for Baleno and at www.marutisuzuki.com for DZire Diesel.

The customer is requested to fill in the chassis number (MA3 followed by 14-digit alpha-numeric number) on the computer screen. The chassis number is embossed on the vehicle ID plate and is also in the vehicle invoice/registration documents.

Earlier this month, Maruti Suzuki India recalled 20,427 units of S-Cross for faulty brake parts.
