There may be a possibility of allocating these flood-affected Dusters to dealers in other parts of India. After the sale of such vehicles, in the event of any malfunctioning, company/dealership can cite it as a one-off case easily as all such cases will not be reported from the same city.

If Renault has a long term strategy in India, they should not allow TVS to sell these cars. Instead they can auction these cars publicly. This will increase customer confidence in the brand. In fact, Renault should introduce some CBMs (confident building measures) to retain their prospective customers.
  • Publish the VIN Nos/Engine/Serial Numbers of the Cars that are damaged in the flood so that buyers can cross check them with their new vehicles. (and there by make sure that they have not taken delivery of a refurbished car)
  • Force the dealer to auction them.
  • Publish an affidavit in all major news papers in South India saying that these damaged/refurbished vehicles will not be sold to the public through the showroom.
Renault cannot wash their hands off from their responsibility and in case of any such incidents of cheating, that is going to BADLY effect the reputation of the brand .

This is not good. I am sure the floods did not happen overnight and didnt they see this coming? I mean, what about the security guards at the yards. Where were they? Didn't they see the yard getting flooded? So bad to see such ill treatment towards the machines ..

Big thanks to Divakar T.G for sharing!

Due to heavy rains in Bangalore this week, 137 VW cars suffered flood damage at the Yard @ Tumkur Road, Bangalore. Vento, Polo and Ameo vehicles are affected. All VW technicians were deployed for cleaning and refurbishing work. There were a few Mahindra vehicles also (less than 50). Maybe this information is helpful for those who are buying VW cars from this dealer. Thank you.
