Maruti to recall 69,555 units of DZire, Swift, Ritz
In April, Maruti, controlled by Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp, said it recalled more than 103,000 vehicles to replace faulty fuel caps and in November recalled 1,492 cars to inspect the steering column.

While India does not have a standard recall code, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, an industry body, introduced a voluntary recall code in 2012 which directs car makers to inform customers about any issues that would compromise their safety and fix it free of cost.

Toyota Motor Corp, Honda Motor Co, Ford Motor Co and General Motors Co have recalled vehicles in India over the last couple of years.

Maruti said on Tuesday it would recall 55,938 units of its Dzire compact sedan and 12,486 units of its Swift and 1,131 units of the Ritz hatchbacks manufactured between 8 March, 2010 and 11 August, 2013 to inspect and repair wiring harness fitments.

No other models have been affected, it said in a statement.

Maruti Suzuki said its dealers would get in touch with owners of the affected vehicles, and if needed would fix the problem for free.
