11,177 Grand Vitaras recalled due to possible defect in rear seat belt mounting brackets


India’s top automaker Maruti Suzuki said Monday it is recalling 11,177 Grand Vitara vehicles to address possible defects in the rear seat belt mounting brackets. This is the second recall within a week.

On rare occasions, Maruti said the bracket could come loose for a long period of time, impairing the seat belt’s function.

Last week, Maruti said it would recall 17,362 vehicles, including Alto K10, S-Presso, Ico, Brezza, Baleno and Grand Vitara models, for possible defective airbag controllers.

The company, which is majority owned by Japan’s Suzuki Motors, is expected to report results for the quarter ending December 31 on Tuesday.
