Skoda Auto India will be calling back a small fraction of the Laura’s they sold in India, the recall will focus especially on their Laura premium sedans which were produced between 2009-10. The recalls which will be focused on updating the Skoda Laura's software control units of the braking safety system. The update which first showed on Skoda India's website under service action alerts, while Skoda has also announced that they will be conducting a service campaign to update the software for BS/ESC control unit of 663 units of the Laura model range
produced between 2009 and 2010. This recall actually shows how responsible Skoda's after sales service in India has become in the recent years. The ABS or Anti-lock-braking system prevents the wheels from locking in the event that you would need aggressive braking, while ESC or electronic stability control helps ensure that the vehicle is stable while braking. The update is likely to focus on fine-tuning algorithms that were now out of date. What's even better is that the update will come to customers at no extra cost. Skoda Auto has ensured that Authorised service centres in India will contact customers to schedule appointments for their Laura. The entire process in and out of the service station should take no longer than one hour. "Authorised ŠKODA dealers will contact customers for a service appointment, this activity will be done at no cost to the customer and will take approximately 1 hour," the company said.
