The owners of the affected cars will be notified and the faulty fuel pumps will be replaced at dealerships across the country without any additional fee.
The replacements will begin from June 20 and it will be carried out in a phased manner, considering that the restrictions have been relaxed recently and the manufacturer's service stations and dealerships are working with a leaner staff in the initial stage to reduce the risk of contracting the virus.
The replacement of the fault will be a long process, as there is a shortage of manpower and that adds to the time taken to rectify the issue. All service stations and dealerships are working with adherence to safety standards and social distancing to ensure the well being of consumers and employees as well.
