If reports are to be believed, Skoda has recalled the current generation of the Octavia due to a possible fault in the child lock. While the recall was made in international markets such as Australia about a month ago, Skoda India has recently made a recall in the country for around 539 units of the sedan.

A manufacturing fault might result in damage to the detent lever of the child lock, which could lead to the active child lock being switched off. This could result in the child opening the door with the child lock on. If opened, the door could result in injury to the child and damage the door as well.
