New Delhi, Maruti Suzuki India said on Wednesday it is recalling 17,362 units of models such as the Alto K10, Brezza and Baleno to inspect and replace a defect airbag controller. Affected models are Alto K10, S-Presso, EcoBrezza, Baleno and Big Vitaraproduced between December 8, 2022 and January 12, 2023, the country’s largest automaker said in a registration application.

“The recall is being conducted to inspect and replace the Airbag Controller at no charge, if necessary in these vehicles,” it added.

It is suspected that there is a possible defect in the affected component, which in rare cases could result in the airbags and seatbelt pretensioners not deploying in the event of a vehicle accident, the auto major said.

“As a matter of extreme caution, customers of the suspected vehicles are advised not to drive or operate the vehicle until the affected part has been replaced,” the company said.

Affected car owners will receive notice from Maruti Suzuki authorized workshops for immediate attention, it noted.
