New Honda Amaze manufactured between April 17 and May 24, 2018 recalled to fix EPS (Electric-assist Power Steering) sensor harness issue
Honda Cars India has announced the recall of the new generation Amaze subcompact sedan over an issue found in the EPS (Electric-assist Power Steering) sensor harness. The Japanese manufacturer has listed a total of 7,290 units for the voluntary callback and they are manufactured between April 17, 2018 and May 24, 2018.
Recalls are common among manufacturers as issues could be noticed in post-inspection or after the car being rolled out for customers. In this case, Honda says some of the affected Amaze sedans may have their EPS indicator light turned on and the drivers could feel steering heavier than normal.
Just as usual, Honda will conduct the recall campaign without charging any cost to the customers, and if the suspected system was found to be defective, the company will replace the entire EPS column. The recalling operations will be carried out from July 26, 2018 onwards.
Customers can contact the authorised Honda dealerships across the country regarding the recall if they desire. Honda will, however, reach each customer affected by the issue on its own and make appointments for the ‘preventive inspection’.
Owners can also enter their 17-character alpha numeric VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on Honda’s official website and see if their cars come under the recall campaign. Honda launched the second generation Amaze in the domestic market back in May 2018 amidst much anticipation.
It has delivered on its promises for the company by becoming the best-selling car in May and June with over 9,000 unit sales each time. The new Amaze features comprehensively revised design language along with an overhauled interior. While the features list has now been highly competitive, having first-in-class diesel CVT is considered as one of its biggest USPs.
