According to the carmaker, those who have bought the Grand Vitara SUV manufactured between August 8 and November 15 last year, will receive the recall notice. Maruti Suzuki issued a statement in a regulatory filing on Monday, saying, "It is suspected that there is a possible defect in rear seat belt mounting brackets which in a rare case, may loosen in the long run and impact its functionality."

This is the second time Maruti Suzuki has recalled Grand Vitara SUVs. Earlier this month, more units were recalled due to faulty airbag controller.

Those who own the faulty units of the SUV will receive communication from the authorised dealer workshops of Maruti Suzuki soon. The SUVs will be summoned for inspection, after which the faulty parts will be replaced free of cost.
