The Grand Vitara’s Toyota equivalent, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, has been recalled as well due to the same possible defect. While the carmaker has called back 4,026 units of the SUV, it has stated that there haven’t been any reported failures of the affected part till date.

Owners of the affected vehicles manufactured in this period can take their SUV to the workshops to have the part inspected, while Maruti and Toyota will be contacting the affected-vehicle owners too. If found faulty, the part will be replaced at no cost.
