General Motors India has announced a recall of 1,01,597 units of the Chevrolet Beat to replace a faulty clutch pedal lever that could crack with continuous usage. This recall affects only the diesel variant of the Beat made between December 2010 and July 2014. The company has stated that it will check these vehicles and if necessary replace the clutch pedal lever.
General Motors said in a statement, The company has started voluntarily notifying owners of the Beat Diesel to take their cars to any of Chevrolet's 248 authorised service centres across India."
The repairs will be made free of charge at Chevrolet's authorized service centres and customers can contact their nearest Chevrolet dealership and schedule an appointment for vehicle inspection and correction.
The last major recall Chevrolet made was in 2013 to fix emissions and specification issues of the Chevrolet Tavera. This year however, seems to be ending with a lot of recalls from different companies. Honda recently recalled around 90,000 units of the City and Mobilio to fix a fuel return pipe and just before that, they recalled almost 4,000 units of the Honda City CVT variant to update the software that controls the transmission.
