General Motors India on Tuesday announced a recall of over one lakh units of the diesel variant of Chevrolet Beat, manufactured between December 2010 and July 2014, to replace faulty clutch pedal lever.

The company said it will inspect and if necessary, replace the clutch pedal lever in 1,01,597 units of Chevrolet Beat Diesel. “The company has started voluntarily notifying owners of the Beat Diesel to take their cars to any of Chevrolet’s 248 authorised service centres across India,” General Motors India said in a statement. The clutch pedal lever in these units is susceptible to cracking on continued usage, it added.

“Quality and care are our highest priorities and we are committed to putting customers at the centre of everything we do.

If we foresee a potential issue, we ensure that it is corrected as soon as possible, as part of our complete commitment to customer satisfaction,” the company said. The affected vehicles will be repaired free of cost at Chevrolet’s authorised service centres across the country.

In 2013, the company had recalled 1.14 lakh units of its multi-purpose vehicle Chevrolet Tavera, manufactured between 2005 and 2013, to address emissions and specification issues.

Ever since the Siam introduced the voluntary recall policy for safety related issues, automobile manufacturers have recalled over 18.04 lakh vehicles so far.
