American automobile major General Motors’ Indian arm said on Monday it will recall 155,000 units of Chevrolet Spark, Beat and Enjoy to resolve a snag.

This is the second major recall of over 100,000 vehicles in the recent times by General Motors India.

In a statement, the auto major said it is voluntarily recalling 155,000 units of Chevrolet Spark, Beat and Enjoy models rolled out between 2007 and 2014 to address a potential safety issue for a remote keyless entry accessory issue.

“If there is a potential issue, we ensure that it is corrected as soon as possible as part of our complete commitment to customer satisfaction,” its president and managing director Arvind Saxena was quoted as saying in the statement.

In 2013, the company recalled around 113,000 units of its Tavera model to address emission norms violation.

The company is notifying customers individually about the recall and also how and when to bring in their vehicles for inspection and correction.

Alternatively, customers can also contact their nearest Chevrolet dealership and schedule an appointment for vehicle inspection and correction. The affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge, the company said.
