In one of the largest car recalls in of recent times, General Motors India today announced voluntarily recall of 1.14 lakh units of the popular Tavera MPV. The Tavera MPVs that fall under this recall were manufactured between 2005 and 2013. These car might have “emissions and specification” issues.
GM India has already informed the Indian government authorities of potential emissions issues with Tavera BSIII models and “specifications” issues with the Tavera BSIV models.
The company said,”General Motors India (GMI)… is voluntarily recalling the Chevrolet Tavera BS3 (2.5L variant) and BS4 (2.0L variant) from model years 2005-2013 to address emissions and specification issues.”
The cost of repair of all the 1,14,000 Tavera MPVs will be borne by GMI and the cars can be inspected and/or repaired at any of the 280 Chevrolet dealerships. The company has clearly said that the issues are related to safety of driver/occupants/other road users and that it has found a solution to the issues and has performed the required engineering validation.
“After the proposed solution receives approval from authorities, General Motors will resume Tavera production and sale, and move forward with its recall and customer notification plan for both the BSIII and BSIV models,” the company said. GMI President and Managing Director Lowell Paddock said: “Our customers are at the centre of everything we do. Exceeding their expectations begins with designing, building and selling the world’s best vehicles that endure over time.”
