Maruti Suzuki recalling 100,000 cars with faulty fuel tank from India, abroad

Maruti Suzuki is recalling 100,000 cars in India and overseas due to potential fuel leakage problems. About 50,000 of the popular A Star hatchbacks have been recalled since November, from India and from export markets including Europe, Australia and North Africa.

Maruti Suzuki had earlier recalled its hatchback Swift in 2005 to change bolts to reduce the front suspension noise in Swift petrol and in 2007 electronic control units of Swift diesel. It had also replaced speedometer in M800 and Omni in 2008.

The company has so far changed the gasket in about 50,000 units of its fifth global model, the A-Star. The model was launched on November 19, 2008 and the 998cc K10B petrol engined car is produced only in India at its Manesar facility.

The recalled vehicles belong to a lot made till August 22 last year, the spokesperson said. Last month, Japanese auto major Honda recalled 8,532 units of its sedan City in India due to defective power window switch as part of a global recall initiative.
