Honda Cars India Ltd.(HCIL) on 20 July 2018 issued a recall notice for its best-selling compact sedan The new 2018 Honda Amaze manufactured from 17 April 2018 to 24 May 2018. Honda claims 7290 units of the new 2018 Amaze have been affected, as Honda cited a problem with the EPS (Electric-Assist Power Steering) Sensor harness which could cause trouble in the steering control.
According to the company, there is a possibility that in some of these cars, the customers may feel the steering heavier and EPS indicator light comes on. HCIL will voluntarily replace the EPS column unit after inspection if required.
The inspection and replacement would be carried out free of cost at authorized Honda car dealerships across India starting from 26th July 2018 and the owners will be contacted individually.
The customers can check whether their cars are covered under this Product Update campaign by submitting their 17 character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the special microsite which has been created on the company’s website (www.hondacarindia.com).
