Thanks to Sarang Purohit for sharing this information with other enthusiasts.

Skoda has issued a recall for 663 units of the Laura produced between 2009 and 2010. The cars will receive a software update for the ABS/ESC Control Unit under the said recall.

Skoda dealers will contact the owners of the affected cars for booking service appointments. The company claims that the update will take approximately 1 hour, and will be done free of cost. Owners can check if their cars are affected or not by entering their Vehicle Identification Number (a 17-character digit alpha-numeric number) on Skoda’s official website.

In 2005, Skoda introduced the second-generation Octavia as the Laura in India. It was sold alongside the first-generation Octavia in its initial years. The Laura received a facelift in 2009 and in 2013, the company decided to bring back the Octavia badge and discontinue the Laura from the Indian market.
