Renault-Nissan alliance has issued a voluntary recall for the Kwid and the Datsun redi-GO hatchbacks to rectify a faulty fuel hose and clip. Since both the cars share the same platform, the possible mechanical fault will effect both the entry level hatches.
The recall goes for the cars manufactured between October 2015 and May 18, 2016 that includes about 50,000 units of Renault Kwid 0.8 and about 932 units of Datsun redi-Go. Company will inspect the fuel hose of the cars and fix a clip at no cost to the customer.

We will inspect these cars without any cost to the customers and carry out necessary measures, if required.
