Safety Concerns Results In Vehicle Recalls By Major Brands

April 20,2019

The minor glitches in vehicle have raised serious concerns among the global auto giants and the efforts are on to rectify these glitches. In this regard BMW which has recalled its vehicles in 2017 for possible engine fire has further asked its 185,000 vehicles owners in the U.S. for a recall. Such was the scare that 2 years back, BMW had recommended its customer to keep the vehicles outdoor till they fix the problem.
The problem was identified with their Z4, 3 & 5 series models starting from 2006 onwards. Till date around 9,25,000 vehicles have been recalled including the recent addition for fixing the possible engine fire problem.
The reason for the problem as per documents filed by BMW with the government, the company has identified that moisture can get into the cars' positive crankcase ventilation valve heater and cause plastic parts to degrade. That can lead to an electrical short and possible fire even when the engine is not on. The BMW dealers will replace the heater at no extra cost to vehicle owners. The recall is scheduled to start May 28.

Similary Honda Cars India (HCIL) has also asked it 3669 customers of its premium brand Honda Accord to visit authorised Honda dealership for getting faulty driver side front airbag inflators replaced. The recall is applicable for Honda Accord made between 2003 and 2006. The recall is scheduled to start from 18th Apr-19 across company’s dealership in India on free of cost basis.
Suzuki the Japanese small car manufacturer announced on Thursday that it was recalling 2 million vehicles shipped domestically, citing improper inspections and a series of other faults including false fuel efficiency data.
