5,900 Maruti Suzuki Super Carry LCVs recalled in India
India's largest automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has issued an official recall of its only LCV offering, the Super Carry. The company mentions that recall campaigns are undertaken globally to rectify faults that may be potential safety defects. Maruti Suzuki states that it will inspect the possible defect in fuel filter of the 5,900 Super Carry vehicles that were manufactured between April 26 to August 1, 2018. This also include vehicles in which fuel filter has been replaced in field during this period.
The voluntary recall will be initiated from December 26th onwards wherein the owners of the suspected vehicles will be contacted by Maruti Suzuki dealers for inspection and replacement of the faulty part free of cost. Alternatively, customers of Super Carry can visit the company website and fill in the chassis number (MA3 followed by 14 digit alpha-numeric number) on the computer screen to check if their vehicle needs any attention. The chassis number is embossed on the vehicle ID plate and is also in the vehicle invoice / registration documents.
This is the second time the Maruti Suzuki Super Carry LCV has been recalled in India. Previously, 640 units of the LCV were recalled to inspect for a possible defect in fuel pump assembly. Maruti Suzuki India Limited had launched its first light commercial vehicle (LCV), Super Carry, in Ahmedabad. The LCV, which looks like the Suzuki LCV available in Japan and other markets, boasts spacious cabin, flat seats with thick glass fibre heat shield and ergonomically designed pedal for long drive. The LCV comes with a new 793cc turbocharged diesel engine that delivers a peak torque of 75Nm at 2,000rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The company claims a fuel efficiency of 22.07kmpl. The Super Carry has a loading area of 3.25 square metres with a payload of 740kg. The LCV also boats a chassis built with rust-resistant galvanised steel, front disc brakes and LSPV braking system.
