New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India Limited has announced that it would recall 13,157 diesel engine cars to inspect the connecting rod bolt. If the connecting rod bolt is found defective the company will replace the component free of cost.

The cars being recalled have engines manufactured between 13th November and 4th December 2010. Diesel versions of the Swift Dzire (4505 cars), Swift (6841 cars) and Ritz (1811 cars) will be recalled.

"No other vehicles in the range or the vehicles exported by Maruti Suzuki are impacted," the company said in a statement.

The defect could cause the engine to stall. According to sources, the defect in the bolt was probably caused because some process was not strictly adhered to during manufacture.

Earlier MSIL had recalled more than 1 lakh A-Star compact hatchbacks to replace a faulty fuel pump gasket.
