Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Co. is receiving criticism from customers. The company is neither recalling nor servicing its trucks even when they were found to have serious defects in safety.

According to auto repair industry sources and truck owners, a considerable number of Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle’s Euro 6 released for three years from 2015 was found to lose or gain in speed in an instant while operating.

This is because of faults with exhaust control device in the Euro 6 that block an AdBlue spraying line that makes consume its own engine oil or reduce exhaust from engines. There are also about 220 Tata Daewoo trucks that saw its engine oil plunge.

South Korea has 72 Tata Daewoo service centers but most of them can only repair five to six cars a day and lack in component supplies. About 100 out of 220 cars that reported car defects so far haven’t been repaired yet.

Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle hasn’t taken proper measures, though its consumers are having difficulties in repairing their cars. In this regard, Tata Daewoo car owners said, “We want to ask if it is right to turn away from car defects after selling cars as a conglomerate.

Meanwhile, Tata Daewoo car owners held a rally in front of Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle’s plant in Gunsan at the end of January, forcing the company to stop selling cars with defects that puts car owners’ lives at risk and come up with fundamental measures for defects.
