    Maruti Suzuki, India's top car manufacturer, has announced a recall of 7,213 units of the Baleno RS manufactured between October 27, 2016 and November 1, 2019. The recall is due to a possible defect in the vacuum pump that assists braking.

    Maruti Suzuki's authorised workshops will inform affected vehicle owners and replace the parts free of cost.

    The Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS got all disc brakes on all wheels, with a 10 percent stiffer suspension set-up. The Baleno RS got a 102hp, 150Nm 1.0-litre turbo-engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

    The Baleno RS was priced at Rs 8.69 lakh (ex-showroom) and was produced only until 2020. However, it is still in demand in the used car market, so remember to check if the owner has replaced the faulty brake part.

    This recall follows the one in January 2023, which was due to a faulty airbag controller and affected over 17,000 vehicles. That recall affected the Alto K10, S-Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno and Grand Vitara manufactured between December 8, 2022, and January 12, 2023.

    In December, Maruti Suzuki India also issued a recall of 11,177 Grand Vitara SUVs manufactured between August 8 and November 15, 2022, due to a possible defect in the rear seat-belt mounting brackets. The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder was also recalled for the same reason.
