HCIL will voluntarily replace the Proportioning Valve, a part of the brake system, of non-ABS variants of Brio and non-ABS variants of petrol Amaze after inspection, if required.
Honda Cars India Ltd on Monday announced it would recall a total of 31,226 units of select variants of the Amaze compact sedan and Brio hatchback to inspect them for a possible defect in the brake system.
The company “would carry out inspection of Proportioning Valve of 15,623 units of non-ABS variants of Brio and 15,603 units of non-ABS variants of petrol Amaze manufactured from 28 February 2013 to 16 January 2014,” it said in a statement.
Honda explained that there is a possibility of wrong assembly of the Proportioning Valve in some of these cars.
Proportioning Valve is a part of the brake system that adjusts brake distribution pressure to the wheels. The Proportioning Valve is not a part of the braking system for ABS variants and therefore the ABS variants of Brio & Petrol Amaze and all variants of Diesel Amaze do not require any inspection, it added.
However no complaint related to this part has been reported, it said, adding that HCIL will voluntarily replace the Proportioning Valve after inspection, if required.
“The inspection and replacement would be carried out free of cost at HCIL dealerships across India, and the owners will be contacted individually in a phased manner,” the car maker said.
