M&M recalls SUV Rexton to rectify faulty rear driveshaft

New Delhi: Mahindra & Mahindra is recalling in India an unspecified number of its SUV Rexton manufactured on or before September 2014 to rectify faulty rear driveshaft.

The recall of the Rexton SUV from the stable of M&M’s South Korean arm is being done to check possibility of any loss of torque in the rear driveshaft. The inspection and subsequent rectification will be carried out free of cost for all Rexton customers, who will be individually contacted by the company, M&M said in a BSE filing.

Calling it a “proactive inspection”, the company said the exercise is being carried out to ensure a hassle-free experience for its customers.

“This action is also in compliance with SIAM’s voluntary code on vehicle recall,” M&M added. The Rexton is priced between Rs 21.06 lakh and Rs 24.86 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Over two million vehicles have been recalled by various automakers in India ever since the auto industry body SIAM started voluntary vehicle recalls for safety related issues in July 2012.
