New Delhi: India’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India Ltd on Friday said it has recalled 75,419 units of its premium hatchback Baleno to upgrade their airbag controller software.

In addition, 1,961 Dzire diesel cars (only auto gear shift or AGS variant) will be attended to for inspection and replacement of a faulty fuel filter.

Baleno, along with S-Cross Crossover, is sold under the company’s new sales network Nexa, which is aimed at customers who tend to graduate from a Maruti car to any other brand.

Of these, 15,995 Baleno cars (only diesel), manufactured between 3 August 2015 and 22 March 2016, will also be attended to for inspection and replacement of a faulty fuel filter.

The Baleno cars covered in the recall include 17,231 units of exports.

Starting 31 May, Maruti Suzuki dealers will start contacting owners of the vehicles covered. The software upgrade and the replacement of the faulty fuel filter will be done free of cost.
