Skoda recalls 539 units of Octavia sedan in India
Czech car maker Skoda is recalling 539 units of its premium sedan Octavia in India to fix faulty manual child lock of two rear doors.
"The campaign is related to 539 Octavia units produced between November 2015 and April 2016," Skoda India, the Indian unit of the Czech carmaker, said in a statement.
To check the manual child lock of two rear doors, Skoda dealers will contact Octavia customers across India for a service appointment, it added.
The Czech carmaker said the assessment of the locks will be done in 12 minutes only.
"In case the locks need to be replaced under the service campaign, the process will conclude in 45 minutes and will be done at no cost to the customer," it added.
The company currently sells four models--Rapid, Yeti Octavia and Superb in India. Octavia is priced between Rs 16.58 lakh and Rs 22.41 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Last week Mahindra & Mahindra had recalled in India an unspecified number of its SUV Rexton manufactured on or before September 2014 to rectify faulty rear drive shaft.
Over two million vehicles have been recalled by various automakers in India ever since the auto industry body SIAM started voluntary vehicle recalls for safety related issues in July 2012.
