New Delhi: The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) has pulled up Hyundai Motors India for selling  vehicles with faulty air bags in the country.

The commission was hearing a revised petition of the company against the district and state consumer forums, which, on the complain of a consumer, held Hyundai Motors responsible for selling defective air bags.

The commission remarked “Such like Air Bags further endanger the lives of the customers. The customers think that their lives would be saved because they are armed with Air Bags. The opposite party/Hyundai Motors India Ltd. is collecting crores of rupees from innocent customers throughout the country on the pretext of life saving Air Bags. So many customers are lead up the garden path. This is a very serious matter and the Hyundai Motors India Ltd. should stop selling such like vehicles with Air Bags unless or until they are cent percent without flaws of any kind.”

The commission, dismissing the revision petition of the car company, levied a fine of Rs 1 lakh.
