Chevrolet Tavera recall: Only 14,000 units of 1.14 lakh fixed until now

Chevrolet Tavera recall: Only 14,000 units of 1.14 lakh fixed until now

General Motors had issued a recall of 1.14 lakh units of its Tavera MPV back in July, 2013. In one of the biggest vehicle recalls in the country, the Tavera 2.5-litre and 2.0-litre engines manufactured between 2005 and 2013 had emission and specification issues, and failed to adhere to the BS3 and BS4 emission norms respectively. Now, a report from a blogsite reveals that only 14,000 units of owners who responded to the recall have been fixed. 

P Balendran, Vice President, General Motors India said that they have been sending weekly reports to Government authorities showing its progress in the matter. Production and sales of the vehicle had been suspended a month before the recall had been issued. The American manufacturer had also sacked several employees including some high ranking officials of the powertrain and engineering departments who were involved as a part of its worldwide policy. Chevrolet got back the regulatory approvals from the Government in October last year for BS3 variant and has resumed production.

The issues with the engine are not safety-related, which probably has lead to a laxity among the owners. Tavera is also a popular vehicle among taxi and fleet owners and there is tendency among owners to sell them off, after using them for a while. All this makes it difficult to track down the vehicles. Besides, as the recall is applicable for vehicles manufactured from 2005, it is possible that many of the recalled vehicles have been scrapped or abandoned.
