Isuzu Motors India has issued a recall of its adventure utility vehicle D-Max V-Cross in India after customers have complained about experiencing a jerk at certain level of RPM (Revolution per Minute).

A report of Zigwheels says that the issues will be fixed by upgrading an engine control unit (ECU) software. The process will take about 30 minutes and all the expenses regarding the same will be borne by the company. The company has reportedly started contacting the owners of the affected model and the customers can also reach out to the Isuzu service centre to check if their vehicle has been affected.

Isuzu launched the D-Max V-Cross in India in May at Rs 12.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). Its 134bhp BSIV-compliant 2.5-litre CRDi diesel engine is mated to five-speed manual transmission and delivers 320Nm of torque at 1,800-2,800rpm. The pick-up features 4WD (shift-on-fly) drive mode and high-ride suspension, which offers higher ground clearance.

The D-Max V-Cross is based on the iGRIP (Isuzu Gravity Response Intelligent Platform) technology and is being produced at its newly opened manufacturing facility in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh.

The vehicle recall saga of India seems to be never-ending. Earlier in October, Datsun recalled its recently launched redi-Go in India to fix a problem with fuel hose and French car-maker Renault  also took back its popular model Kwid to the workshop to inspect the faulty fuel system around the same time. In October, we also saw Hyundai Motor India Ltd recalling 7,657 units of its entry level hatchback Eon manufactured between January 1 and January 31 2015 over wrong installation of clutch cable with battery cable.
