The process of replacing any faulty parts will begin from the first week of November and till such a time, Maruti Suzuki is asking owners of these particular units to refrain from driving in water-logged areas and to avoid direct water spray on electrical and electronic parts in these vehicles.

Customers can check if their vehicle is part of the recall order by logging on to the Maruti Suzuki or Nexa websites - depending on the model, and entering the vehicles' chassis number (MA3, followed by 14-digit alpha-numeric code) to ascertain if their vehicle needs to be inspected.

Voluntary recalls are common the world over with car makers reaching out to customers of potentially affected vehicles and asking for such units to be brought in for checks. In case of fault detection, the repair or replacement is almost always carried out free of cost. In the past, some manufacturers in the US have had to pay hefty fines because they were found to have avoided recalling suspect vehicles.
