Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) recalled 29,878 units of its pick up vehicles on Tuesday to replace faulty fluid pipe amid suspicion of improper assembly. The automaker informed in a regulatory filing that a proactive inspection and replacement of a fluid pipe is needed in some of the pickup vehicles manufactured between January 2020 and February 2021 for suspicion of improper assembly.
The recall is limited to a certain batch of 29,878 vehicles and is keeping in line with the company’s customer-centric approach, the filing highlighted. “The inspection and subsequent rectification will be carried out free of cost for all customers, who will be individually contacted by the company. In an endeavor to ensure a hassle-free experience for its customers, the company is proactively carrying out this activity,” M&M said. The action is also in compliance with the voluntary code on vehicle recall.
Last month, Mahindra announced undertaking a proactive inspection and replacement of diesel engines in some of its vehicles manufactured at Nashik factory for suspicion of premature wear of engine parts due to contaminated fuel that was received in the factory on a particular date and was filled in the select batch.
The exercise was for a limited batch of less than 600 vehicles manufactured between June 21 and July 2, 2021, and was keeping in line with the company’s customer-centric approach, the company had said in July.
Mahindra & Mahindra also recalled 1,577 units of its SUV Thar with a diesel power train to replace faulty camshaft, an engine part in February.
