Sail has the same engine as that in Enjoy and UVA.With Tavera already out it is their entire range which is affected by the quality problem.GM may be still hiding some facts.

So one thing is clear that the problem is larger than Fiat Multijet engine and it affects GM diesel engines which is a bigger cause of concern for prospective and existing GM customers

Tavera is facing some problems with the emissions and it is only for the BS III engine which is sold in tier 2 cities. So it has been stopped for now and yes its not the multijet in the Tavera

How is it that the Tavera is also affected? I do not think it has the same engine.

the engine under discussion here is the famous multijet engine which as already mentioned, is used by Fiat, TATA, MS, GM etc. The engine was developed by GM and Fiat and not SIAC.

If I remember correct the GM diesel engine is also modified and developed by SAIC

Centaur in this situation GM will never come out with actual facts and we have no other source to know the real reasons except for GM who is tight lipped as they are not even informing their customers.In case you have a reliable source you can suggest

Nipun - rather than just jumping to conclusion would help if you can read the news completely. The problem apparently is only with the diesel cars and not petrol ones. SO the production for only the diesel has been stopped. Note that the car itself has no problem but the diesel engine that reportedly has some quality issues. Also the same engine is being used in the enjoy but that prodcution and sales for the enjoy still continues atleast as of now. Considering the fact that its the same engine being used by FIAT, TATA, Maruti and GM, blaming China SAIC for the problem would be baseless IMO since they did not develop the engine from scratch
EDIT - I guess its better to wait till the actual problem is out and then play the blame game

I have always been saying that GM should not have gone to SAIC ,China as China has not really come up to the standard of Japan and Korea in terms of quality.This setback to GM was expected.I hope there is a resolution soon as customers are at the receiving end.

It is all over the net. Just google "gm stops production of sail" and see what all are displayed: recall of diesel Sail, stopping production and sale of Sail, tiff between GM and SAIC etc etc.
