Mumbai: Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Tuesday recalled 52,686 new Swift and Baleno models to undertake a service campaign to inspect for a possible fault in brake vacuum hose.
New Swift and Baleno units manufactured between December 1, 2017 and March 16, 2018 will be covered in this campaign, MSI said in a statement to customers.
A total of 44,982 units of new Swift, which was launched in February this year, and 7,704 units of Baleno are covered under the service campaign. Brake vacuum hose is a rubber pipe that creates and releases vacuum while applying brake but it has no impact on braking and braking distance.
When contacted, a company official said the exercise did not amount to a recall as the issue did not relate to safety. Service campaigns are undertaken globally by automobile companies to rectify faults that may potentially cause inconvenience to customers, it said.
