Hyundai India today announced a recall for its entry-level hatchback car Eon over faulty parts. The cars in question here have faulty clutch and battery cables that need to be replaced. According to the statement issued by Hyundai, the affected cars were manufactured in early 2015, in the month of January.
Now, the company has initiated a voluntary service campaign to recall and inspect the clutch cable fouling with battery cable of Eon cars that were produced in the month of January 2015. Hyundai will do the necessary repairs at no cost to the customers, the company said in its statement. "The company will voluntarily recall 7,657 number of Eon cars in India manufactured between January 1, 2015 - January 31, 2015," it added.
The company will contact all the customers who have purchased the affected Eon during the respective period and notify them in a phased manner. During the inspection, if the company finds the clutch cable fouling with battery cable it will replace the battery cable free of cost. The company has asked owners of all affected Eon cars to take them to authorised Hyundai dealers.
In 2014, the company had recalled 2,437 units of its sports utility vehicle Santa Fe to replace a faulty stop lamp switch. Over two million vehicles have been recalled by various automakers in India ever since the auto industry body SIAM started voluntary vehicle recalls for safety related issues in July 2012.
