This recall affects SP2-generation Seltos models built from 2019 to 2020 with the 2.0-litre ‘Nu’ naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine.
‘The piston rings fitted to certain vehicles may not meet manufacturing specifications and could cause engine failure and vehicle stalling,” said the company in its recall notice.
“This will result in an unexpected loss of vehicle power.”
