Indian vehicle manufacturers Mahindra and Mahindra have been forced to recall about 600 diesel cars that are believed to be damaged by contaminated fuel. Mahindra and Mahindra said that these vehicles were manufactured at Nashi plant between June 21 and July 2, 2021.
A carmaker in Mumbai released a statement on Monday saying it would inspect and replace diesel engines that break down those cars. Mahinda will conduct a proactive inspection and replacement of these engines that have been suspended from premature wear due to contaminated ash.
