The sole agents of Renault cars Associated Motor Ways (AMW) insisted that the recall initiated by the French carmaker Renault SA will not affect the cars sold in Sri Lanka. 

The manufacturer on Wednesday announced that they would be recalling some of its top-selling, entry-level cars in India, called Kwid, to inspect the fuel system, the company’s local arm has announced.

According to international media reports on the matter Renault India will recall select units of the 0.8-litre variant of the Kwid produced up to 18 May 2016. The company did not immediately say how many cars would be affected...

However, the cars imported to Sri Lanka have been manufactured after this date, AMW Managing Director Samantha Rajapakshe claimed. 

Renault was launched in the country in May this year while the first shipment of cars arrived in June, Rajapakshe said. 

“Also it is important to note that the move is not even a total recall. They will only test it and add a part, we understand,” he said. 

A foreign media report, quoting a statement issued by the company, said that the move was a proactive measure. The cars will be fixed with a fuel hose clip along with the evaluation of overall functionality of the fuel system to mitigate any potential disruption of its fuel supply.
