Faulty Hose in Bolero Maxi Truck Variants, Mahindra Recalling Models
Published On Feb 06, 2017
Mahindra & Mahindra, citing possible faults in hose pipe units, has started recalling Bolero Maxi Truck Plus models in India.
The Mumbai based commercial vehicle maker in a regulatory filing said the recalling is just 'proactive inspection' of fluid hose units equipped in Bolero Maxi Truck Plus pickup vehicles manufactured in September and October 2016. However, the automaker did not reveal any information on the number of vehicles it has planned to recall during the 'proactive inspection'.
The regulatory filing by the CV brand also said, "This is in keeping with the company's customer centric approach. The inspection and subsequent rectification will be carried out free of cost for Bolero Maxi Truck Plus DI customers, who will be individually contacted by the company."
It is not the first time that Mahindra has recalled vehicles citing issues in the fluid hose units. The company, in September 2016, had also recalled its most selling SUV Mahindra Scorpio along with NuvoSport SUVS in order to fix defective fluid hose units located in the engine compartments. Ssang Yong Rexton SUV was also recalled for fixing possible faults in its rear driveshaft, earlier.
It is to be duly noted here that Bolero Maxi Truck Plus is among the top selling commercial vehicles manufactured and sold by Mahindra & Mahindra. Recalling different vehicles for the same issue may put serious questions on the teams responsible for initial and final testing of a product.
Though such recalls are meant for the betterment of customers, these may also send negative vibes in the minds of consumers already using the brand’s products. Brands, as big as Mahindra must always follow the tightest testing norms before launching a product, especially when the product is among the top selling commercial vehicle variants in the country.
