May 2013: Updated with the new Nissan Micra & Sunny recall data.
Aug 2012: The recent and much covered recall of the Ford Figo, sparked a lunch debate – which is the most re-called brand of car manufacturers?
We did some quick Googling and here’s what we could find out:
|Manufacturer||Brand||Year/Month||Issue||# of Units|
|Ford||Figo||2012/Aug||Steering & Suspension||120,000+|
|Toyota||Etios/Liva||2011/Dec||Faulty fuel inlet pipe||40,000|
|Honda||City Sedan||2011/Sep||Power Windows||71,000|
|Maruti||Swift Dezire Diesel||2011/Apr||Connecting Rod Bolt||13,000|
|Honda||City Sedan||2011/Feb||Valve Train Component||58,000|
|Maruti||A Star||2010/Feb||Fuel Tank||100,000+|
|Honda||City Sedan||2010/Jan||Power Window Switch||8,000|
- Does not include Global re-calls where Indian market was un-affected
- Maruti recall numbers are way higher than the true impact on domestic market as some of these were global recalls.
So which is the most recalled brand? Maruti/Honda/Ford 🙂
