There seems to be faulty snags hitting vehicles with 'C' nomenclature. Soon after the giant automaker Maruti recalled its recently launched Ciaz model in the Indian market over faulty gearbox, now General Motors is also taking back its executive sedan Cruze to its workshops.
If a recent report of CarToq is to be believed, GM has silently initiated a recall programme in India for its flagship sedan Cruze to fix a problem with the PVC bracket that holds the wiring in place in the engine bay.
The company has reportedly started communicating with the owners of affected vehicles in the country and the replacement of the faulty part will be done free of cost at the company's dealerships. However, the company is yet to release an official statement on the same.
The car makers recalling vehicles in India is not something new. Recently, Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car maker recalled its newly launched Ciaz sedan to fix a problem with the clutch operation system.
