Non-ABS variants of Brio and Petrol Amaze are affected

Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) has recalled 15,623 non-ABS variants of the Brio hatchback and 15,603 non-ABS variants of the petrol-powered Amaze sedan, manufactured from Feb. 28, 2013 to Jan. 16, 2014, because of potential brake problems.

The automaker said in a press release that the recall is due to the possible mis-assembly of the proportioning valve, a part of the brake system that adjusts brake-distribution pressure to the wheels.

HCIL will voluntarily replace the proportioning valve, if necessary. 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.

A microsite has been created on the company’s website, which allows customers to check if their car will be covered under this recall by submitting their car’s 17-character, alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

According to HCIL, they have received no complaints regarding the issue.
