Maruti Suzuki added that starting August 24, dealers will be contacting the owners of the affected vehicles and will ask them to drop the vehicle at their nearest authorised service centre. The car will then be inspected and if the said part requires replacement, the carmaker will do it for free.

Additionally, if you own the WagonR 1.0-litre from the above mentioned period, you can check if your vehicle has been affected by entering the car’s chassis number in Maruti Suzuki’s dedicated portal. Previous iterations of the WagonR 1.0-litre might also be affected as the latest model was launched in the month of January 2019 while units manufactured from November 2018 comprise of the older model as well. Maruti added that the 1.2-litre variants of the WagonR are unaffected by the recall.

Both engines are offered with a choice of a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT gearbox.
