Looks like the recall season is in no mood to end. The latest recall is of the New Honda Amaze which was launched in May this year, a little after its debut at the 2017 Indian Auto Expo in Feb.
The recall has been issued as a preventive measure to inspect the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) sensor harness. Honda says that there might be a possibility of EPS light coming on, due to which the drivers might feel heaviness to operate the steering wheel in the affected cars.
A total of 7290 cars have been recalled. These 7000+ cars were manufactured from 17th April 2018 to 24th May 2018. Honda has confirmed that the inspection and replacement of the EPS Sensor harness in the affected models will be carried out free of cost at authorized Honda car dealerships across India. The recall will begin from July 26, 2018 and the owners will be contacted individually by the dealerships.
Customers can themselves check whether their car is eligible for the inspection or not by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the special microsite created for the purpose. This microsite is on the company’s website.
