Renault India has voluntarily
recalled 50,000 units of its best selling model Kwid from the Indian market to
do a “pre-emptive and voluntary inspection” of the car’s fuel system and to add
a hose clip. The recall is applicable to only those cars that have been
manufactured uptil May 18, 2016 and pertains to the 800cc model. The company
had launched the 800cc Kwid in September 2015 and has since become a major hit
in the small car segment.
In August 2016 the company had
launched the 1000cc Kwid which is expected to be followed soon by an automatic
version of this car. Renault India manufactures its cars in India under the
Renault Nissan Alliance at the Oragadam, near Chennai.
Apart from the Kwid recall,
around 930 units of the redi-GO cars too are being recalled by Nissan India.
India does not have a mandatory recall policy for the vehicle industry and all the recalls that have been announced
in the recent past are done so based on a code introduced in July 2012 by the
Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). Around 2.2 million recalls
have been effected since this code came into being.
