    Maruti Suzuki has issued a recall of over 17,000 vehicles manufactured between December 8, 2022 and January 12, 2023. The recall is due to a faulty airbag controller placed in the Alto K10, S Presso, Eeco, Brezza, Baleno and Grand Vitara.

    In a regulatory filing with BSE, Maruti Suzuki stated that it will recall 17,362 units of its affected cars and SUVs to inspect and replace the airbag control unit free of cost. It suspects that, in case of an accident, the faulty part may lead to non-deployment of airbags and seat belt pretensioners. The brand also cautioned users to not use or drive their vehicles until those affected are contacted by the workshops, and the part is replaced.

    This is not the first time safety related modules have been affected in Maruti Suzuki cars. Just last month, the brand recalled over 9,000 units of the Grand Vitara, XL6, Ertiga and Ciaz due to a possible defect in the child parts of the front seat belt's shoulder height adjuster assembly.

    Furthermore, in October, Maruti Suzuki recalled more than 9,000 units of the Wagon R, Ignis and Celerio to rectify a defect in the rear brake assembly pins.
