Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) will recall 1,03,311 units of three of their top-selling models manufactured between November 12, 2013 and February 4, 2014 to replace faulty fuel neck fillers.

Though it was initially reported that only mid-size car Dzire would be recalled, latest reports said their UV model Ertiga and compact car Swift will also be called back to replace the faulty part. 

“This exercise is limited to vehicles within the above specified range and does not pertain to any other vehicle of the company,” MSI said in a statement. They said there was a possibility of fuel smell and in some extreme cases a chance of fuel leakage if the tank was filled beyond the auto cut-off level. “The company will replace the fuel filler necks free of cost,” the statement said.

The recall is not a first for the company. In 2010, Maruti had recalled close to one lakh units of their compact segment car A-Star to replace a faulty fuel pump start.
