Pakistan Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) has recalled the country’s best-selling and so-called economical hatchback, Alto, due to a faulty fuel filler neck, which makes it the third recall in a year.
Taking to Twitter, PSMC has asked the customers to get their vehicle’s fuel filler neck changed from Suzuki’s dealerships. Note here that only Suzuki Altos manufactured in 2019, 2020, and 2021, have been recalled.

According to the company, the aforementioned component may have rusted over time and must be replaced in order to avoid any unfortunate circumstances caused by fuel leakage.
It is worth noting that the PSMC launched this service promotion in Karachi, but now it has expanded the campaign nationwide. Earlier in September, PSMC announced a recall for the Suzuki Alto for the same reason.
