Explaining the reasons for the recall, it said in the affected vehicles there is a possibility of fuel smell and in extreme condition there may be some fuel leakage, if filled up to the fuel cap, beyond the 'auto cutoff level'.

'Maruti Suzuki dealers will contact owners of all vehicles in the above mentioned range. The company will replace the fuel filler neck free of cost,' it added.

The new fuel filler necks are being dispatched to the dealer workshops.

'Considering the number of vehicles impacted, the company is building up stock of the required component at its dealer workshops, before inviting customers,' MSI said.

The recall is the company's largest after its recall of about one lakh units of its flagship export model 'A-Star' in February 2010 to replace a faulty fuel pump part.

The company said Swift, Dzire and Ertiga customers, who have bought their cars post November 12, 2013 can check the company website to ascertain if their car is among affected by the recall.
