Maruti Suzuki recalls its top selling models Baleno hatchback and Swift Dzire
India's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India has issued a recall for two of its best-selling cars Baleno and Swift Dzire over faulty airbag controller software and faulty fuel filters. The company will be recalling 75,419 units of the Baleno over issues related to airbags and 1,961 units of the Swift DZire will be recalled for inspection and replacement of a faulty fuel filter.

However, Maruti Suzuki has claimed that this recall has been issued proactively and voluntarily taking customer safety into consideration.

The Baleno cars that have been recalled include both petrol and diesel variants and manufactured between August 3, 2015 and May 17, 2016. For Baleno, both the diesel and petrol variants have been called back, but for Swift Dzire only the recently launched diesel variant will be called back.

Starting May 31, owners of the vehicles covered will be contacted by Maruti Suzuki dealers for replacing the faulty parts. This is not the first recall issued by Maruti Suzuki this year as the company has already recalled 20,427 units of S-cross for faulty break parts earlier this month.

Customers also have the option to check if their vehicle is covered in the recall by entering chassis number of the car on the website of the automaker for Swift Dzire and Nexa's website for Baleno.

Baleno, which was launched in October last year, has become one of the top-selling cars of Maruti Suzuki. The company has already received over 1 lakh bookings for its first premium hatchback.

The Baleno is exclusively manufactured in India and being exported to European countries and Japan. Among the recalled Balenos, 17,231 units were sold in the export markets.
