Not much time after the recent recall from Ford where Ford had recalled 972 units of EcoSport Diesel on component placement concerns, Now GM India recalls 1.14 lakh units of Chevrolet Tavera MPV. This huge recall from General Motors has prompted the government to order a probe into GM India. As per the information obtained, GM India was violating testing norms which was actually done by some of the GM employees.
Further on the violation, some of the GM employees used to install fine tuned lower emission pre tested engines only during inspection checks to meet the specified emission norms and which was then later removed from the vehicle during its delivery. These employees had also manipulated the weights of the several models. As the impact of this violation, big investigation had taken place at the company after which some of the GM Staff is already in trouble and more than 20 executives including four top bosses has already been asked to leave the company.
Within a year, already nine recalls being already done from different models, GM’s recall of 1.4 lakh units of Tavera is considered to be the largest. This has provoked the Indian government to conduct a review.
