Car recalls are meant to iron out any possible manufacturing defects that could have passed to the final production vehicle. These niggles are usually found through the constant tests that the companies run on their products. Their risk assessment exercises find out whether a car component poses any hazard or fails to meet the safety regulations in real-world conditions.

There have been several recalls this year, a total of 34,058 cars to be precise, as per SIAM data in India, by July 2018. We have compiled a month- and manufacturer-wise list of all the vehicles that have been recalled in India so far in 2018. Take a look.
