Hyundai India has issued a recall for over 16,000 units of the CNG variants of the Grand i10 and Xcent for a possible CNG filter assembly issue. According to the NDTV’s carandbike, the recall affected a total of 16409 units of only the non-ABS and CNG variants of the Grand i10 and Xcent which were manufactured between August 1, 2017, to September 30, 2019.
Hyundai India is reaching out to the customers of the affected lot of cars and the recall process will start from November 25, 2019. The automaker will replace the affected part free of cost. It is worth mentioning here that both Hyundai Grand i10 and Xcent CNG come equipped with the same 1.2-litre Kappa VTVT petrol engine. However, the power output is reduced to 65 bhp 98 Nm of peak torque on the CNG models, as opposed to 81 bhp and 110 Nm of peak torque available on the petrol-only version. Both vehicles are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Recently, Nissan Motors recalled at least 3,94,025 cars in the United States over a braking system defect, causing concerns that a brake fluid leak could potentially lead to a fire. In a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under recall number 18V-601, Nissan said, “The leak into internal circuit boards will trigger a warning to drivers, which if ignored may lead to a fire in rare instances.”
