About 1,09,000 units recalled for a fault that might cause petrol leakage.
Suzuki Motor Corp (SMC) has recalled over 1 lakh units of Swift hatchback for a defect that might lead to petrol leakage. The recall is applicable for cars produced between September 2010 and April 2012, in Japan. Suzuki Japan has confirmed that an inadequate connection on the rubber fuel filler hose may cause petrol leakage and four cases have been reported in Japan, but have not lead to any accidents.
Out of the total units recalled 55,146 units were sold in the Japanese domestic market, while 53,801 units were exported to various countries like Australia, Mexico and European countries.
The Swift sold in India is built here at the Maruti Manesar factory and though both vehicles use exactly same platform, there are quite a few changes for the Indian market. Maruti Suzuki India has also confirmed that the global recall does not affect the model sold in India.
