Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) on Friday said it will inspect 40,618 vehicles of WagonR (1 litre) for a possible issue of fuel hose fouling with metal clamp.

The company is proactively and voluntarily undertaking a recall campaign for these WagonR (1 litre) vehicles manufactured between November 15, 2018 and August 12, 2019, it said in a statement.

“Recall campaigns are undertaken globally to rectify faults that may be potential safety defects,” it added.

Starting Saturday (August 24), owners of the ‘suspected’ vehicles will be contacted by Maruti Suzuki dealers for inspection and replacement of the faulty parts, free of cost, it said.

Alternatively, customers of suspected WagonR (1 litre) vehicles can visit the company’s website and fill in the chassis number (MA3 followed by 14 digit alpha-numeric number) on the computer screen to check if the vehicle needs any attention, it added.

The chassis number is embossed on the vehicle ID plate and is also in the vehicle invoice/registration documents.
