Chevrolet Tavera recall – the inside story

One of the main reasons for recalling 114,000 Chevrolet Tavera by General Motors was to check irregularities in emission test which can be traced back to 2003-2004 when the manufacturer was gearing up for the move from BSII to BSIII emission standards. As per the company sources, the manufacturer has two options to upgrade the variant and its 2.5 liter Isuzu engine to the new emission standard which has come to effect on April 2005. One route to meet the emission norm was by having decent safety margin of around 30 percent but this involve upgrading the fuel injection pump, which is a costly component. Chevrolet Tavera price is between Rs 7.24 lakh to 10.94 lakh (EX-Showroom, New Delhi).

BSIII could be met by improving the after treatment with better catalytic converter and without changing the fuel pump. This would help in saving the company approximately US$1700 each car and it is not surprising. The GM Motor chooses to take the less expensive route to BSIII. GM engineers were aware that few vehicles were not meeting the norms and would dodge the conformity of production audit.
