After Japanese carmaker Nissan recalled 22,188 units of its Micra and Sunny models from the Indian market, its partner Renault on Tuesday issued a fresh statement of recalling more than 7,000 Pulse and mid-sized sedan Scala cars over a problem in the master brake cylinder.
The company said the owners of the vehicles will be contacted directly by the dealership and the replacement of the car's master brake cylinder and brake fluid will be conducted free of cost. Those cars manufactured between June 2012 and March 2013 will be taken back for repair. The recall is expected to take place in the coming week.
"This is a proactive measure as part of our global policy and a follow up to our partner Nissan's exercise last week," said a Renault India spokesperson. "Customers will be contacted by the dealers and an appointment will be fixed. This (replacement) should not take more than 40 minutes."
Earlier this week, Nissan India had recalled its popular selling models - Nissan Micra and Sunny, from the auto market to fix faults in its braking system. The company issued a statement on Saturday about recalling vehicles from Africa, Asia, Europe, India, Latin America and Caribbean and the Middle East. A total of 67,089 Micra and Sunny vehicles, manufactured between June 2012 and March 2013, are likely to be taken back
