Maruti Suzuki is recalling 33,098 units (19,780 units of Alto 800 and 13,318 units of the Alto K10) of the Alto to fix a problem with the right-hand door.
The potential issue has been noticed in all Alto 800 and Alto K10 variants, and the vehicles affected are manufactured between December 8 last year
and February 18 this year.
Giving details about the problem, Maruti said, "From customer perspective, there is no concern if the right-hand side door (front and rear) is completely
latched. If however, the door is half-latched, then the door may open if pressure is applied from inside. Although it is a rare condition, but in view of
customer safety, the company is undertaking replacement of the door latch assembly, proactively."
The owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted directly by the dealers of the company and the inspection and the replacement of faulty parts will
be done free of cost. Customers can also visit the company's official website Maruti Suzuki India
to check if their vehicles have also been affected by
entering the 14 digit chassis number (MA3 followed by 14 digit alpha-numeric number). News Source: ibtimes
