Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) yesterday announced that it would carry out inspection of Proportioning Valve of 15,623 units of non-ABS variants of Brio and 15,603 units of non-ABS variants of Petrol Amaze manufactured from 28 February 2013 to 16 January 2014.
Only the non-ABS variants of the Brio and Amaze will be called in for inspection. In case of the Amaze, this does not affect the diesel variant as ABS is part of standard equipment.
There is possibility that in some of these cars there is mis-assembly of Proportioning Valve. However no complaint related to this part has been reported. HCIL will voluntarily replace the Proportioning Valve after inspection, if required. The inspection and replacement would be carried out free of cost at HCIL dealerships across India, and the owners will be contacted individually in a phased manner.
Proportioning Valve is the part of Brake system which adjusts brake distribution pressure to the wheels. Proportioning valve is not a part of braking system for ABS variants & therefore the ABS variants of Brio & Petrol Amaze and all variants of Diesel Amaze do not require any inspection.
A special microsite has been created on the company’s website (www.hondacarindia.com) which enables the customers to check whether their car will be covered under this inspection campaign by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
