The recall addresses the Renault Kwid 0.8L variant manufactured until May 18, 2016.

At the time of publishing this story, calls to Renault India’s spokesperson went unanswered.

The Renault Kwid, launched in September 2015, has quickly become a success story for the carmaker. Launched with a 0.8-liter three-cylinder SCe petrol engine, Renault India launched the Kwid 1.0-liter variant in August this year and is expected to introduce the Kwid AMT in the coming weeks.
