New Delhi, October 13: Popular car company Renault India Pvt. Ltd, announced that it is to recall at least 50,000 units of the Kwid model to rectify a faulty fuel hose clip. The number of cars that may be recalled is based on the total units of Kwid cars manufactured between its launch in September 2015 and 18 May 2016.
The French company clarified, "In line with our high standards of product quality, Renault India is conducting a pre-emptive and voluntary inspection of select 800cc variants of Kwid that were produced up to May 18 this year. As a proactive measure, a fuel hose clip will be added to these select cars along with the evaluation of overall functionality of the fuel system to mitigate any potential disruption of fuel supply.”
Sumit Sawhney, managing director and CEO, Renault India said that they will be increasing the prices as input costs have gone up. They are currently evaluating the period as when to undertake the exercise.
In respect with the customers, the company said that it will inspect the cars without any cost to the customers and carry out necessary measures, if required. "Renault is committed to total customer satisfaction, having robust processes in place to ensure safety, quality and performance of its products," the company officials added. Nissan India Motor Pvt which is sister concern of Renault, also recalled 932 units of the Datsun redi-Go to inspect the fuel hose and fix a clip at no cost to the customer.
