    Maruti Suzuki has issued a recall of 9,125 cars comprising models like the new Grand Vitara, ErtigaXL6 and Ciaz manufactured between November 2-28, 2022. According to Maruti Suzuki, there is a possible defect in one of the child parts of the shoulder height adjuster assembly of the front seatbelts, which could lead to seat belt disassembly. The Grand Vitara’s cousin from Toyota, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, has also been recalled for the same reason.

    Maruti Suzuki’s authorised workshops will inform affected vehicle owners for inspection and replacement of the faulty part, which will be done free of charge.

    Maruti Suzuki recalls in 2022 

    This is not the first recall by Maruti Suzuki this year. In October, the carmaker had recalled 9,925 units of the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Celerio and Ignis manufactured between August 3 and September 1 to rectify a possible defect in the rear brake assembly pin. In April, 19,731 Eeco MPVs were recalled to rectify the incorrect marking of the wheel rim size.

    Upcoming Maruti Suzuki models 

    Maruti Suzuki is now increasing its focus on the SUV space in the Indian market. Earlier this year, the company introduced the all-new Brezza compact SUV and the Grand Vitara midsize SUV in the country, while an all-new Baleno Cross and the much awaited five-door Jimny SUV will go on sale next year. The latter two will see a global debut at Auto Expo 2023 in January.
