Renault India to recall 646 cars over Faulty Airbags

Snapshot: The aforesaid 646 cars are Pulse hatchback and the diesel Scala sedan manufactured between September 2011 and July 2012.

Renault India would recall 646 units of its cars in the country over the issue of faulty airbags. The company thinks that it could potentially affect passengers' safety. The aforesaid 646 cars are Pulse hatchback and the diesel Scala sedan manufactured between September 2011 and July 2012. Renault India has already informed the government in this regard.

Both the recalled models - Pulse and Scala - are primarily devveloped by Renault's global alliance partner Nissan Motors and sold in the name of Micra hatchback and Sunny sedan in India by the Japanese company. The French automajor has re-christened them as Pulse and Scala for the Indian market. Takata, the global airbag supplier to almost every automaker, is having a real tough time over the past couple of months and several automajors have accused the Japanese airbag supplier to be using cheap quality material in the airbags over their disfunctioning. And now, Renault too has alleged that faulty airbags were supplied by Takata. Too much disgrace and dishonour for Takata, overall.

Renault India said it has initiated the recall step voluntarily. "Renault is conducting a voluntary check on certain potentially affected Renault vehicles (620 Pulse and 26 Scala — produced between September 2011 and July 2012) which may have a possibility of driver airbag problem," a company spokesman said in an emailed statement to ET.
