Renault Kiger defect: Mud & dirt entering behind taillights

Mud & dirt traps moisture, and that's what leads to rusting in the long term.

BHPian souvikjana83 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Is anyone facing the issue of sludge getting deposited behind the back-light due to the absence of cover over back tyres? A lot of videos are coming up on the same.

Here's what BHPian SYSTEMIZED had to say on the matter:

I am at one of the Kiger's owners groups and the buyers are unhappy with the mud and dust issue. For mud getting deposited, SC is providing a temporary solution with foam insert at the back while for dust depositing at doors, no solution yet. The company is denying the issue about the dust claims as it does not affect the performance of the car.

Here's what BHPian sandeep3in had to say on the matter:

The company is in denial mode, while the service centre is doing some Jugad to ease out the situation. On the other hand, the service centre told me vehicles plying on the road would get dust and that's normal. So what you see on the door panel is fine and it doesn't impact the horsepower or torque of the vehicle. They really don't have the necessary IQ to distinguish between dust and mud.

The company silence and ignorance of "Indian" customers will hit them back. I think they haven't learned the lesson from the Renault Captur episode.

Here's what BHPian youngknight had to say on the matter:

Sorry if it's not very visible, but Hyderabad has gone through heavy rains and I've seen the issue - I hope they find a proper solution to this.

This is a disappointing sight in a new car.
