Steering system recall for the Renault Kwid 0.8L

Thanks to Abhinav Rohatgi for sending this information. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

Renault has announced a voluntary recall of the 800 cc version of the Kwid. The car has been recalled for a steering system issue but Renault hasn't disclosed the number of cars that might be affected by this issue.

Renault has sent out letters to owners of the Kwid 0.8L notifying them to get their cars inspected at their nearest Renault service centre. The letter also mentions that the workshop would inspect the steering system for overall functionality and safety. The dealers will also carry out necessary repairs, if required at no extra cost to the customer. 

The Renault Kwid comes with two engine choices - 799 cc and 999 cc. Both versions use the same electric power steering rack. However, it is not clear whether the Kwid 1.0L is also affected by the same issue.
