In a regulatory filing by the company with BSE, Maruti Suzuki said, "It is suspected that there is a possible defect in the rear brake assembly pin ('Part'), which, in a certain case, may break and cause a peculiar noise. There may be a possibility of an impact on brake performance in the long run."


The company said replacement parts are being arranged and authorised workshops will contact the customers in a phased manner to inspect their vehicles. The brand also added that “necessary repair, if required, will be undertaken post inspection.”


The Wagon R and the Celerio are sold via Maruti’s Arena retail outlets, while the Ignis is available exclusively at the automaker’s premium Nexa dealership chains.
