General Motors reminds Tavera customers about rectifying emissions, specification issues

January 1, 2016: General Motors India (GMI), which had in July 2013 recalled 114,000 Taveras manufactured between 2005 and 2013 over emissions and specification issues, has once again asked those who have not rectified their vehicles to do so at its dealerships.

The company issued a public notice informing “impacted Tavera owners” to visit their nearest dealership to get the necessary repairs done. In 2013, after the company ordered the recall of 114,000 Taveras, it wrote to all its buyers about getting the changes done to the vehicles. However, the response was apparently lukewarm, forcing the company to issue a public notice.

In July 2013, GMI announced a voluntary recall of its Chevrolet Tavera BS3 (2.5L variant) and BS4 (2.0L variant) from model years 2005-2013 to address potential emissions and specification issues. The company said neither issue was safety-related.
