After Renault, Datsun Announces A Recall For The redi-GO

Written By:

Vehicle recalls are becoming increasingly common in the modern day, and only a day after Renault made a recall for the Kwid, Datsun has announced a recall for the recently launched redi-GO hatchback.

Datsun, the Japanese carmaker has announced a recall for 932 units of the redi-GO in India over a faulty fuel system. The affected models were manufactured till May 18, 2016.

Datsun will start notifying customers from this month onward to inspect the fuel hose and fix a clip. The work will be carried out for free and the customers will not be charged for replacement.

In an official statement, Datsun said, "Datsun is conducting a voluntary recall campaign on certain India-manufactured Datsun redi-GO vehicles to inspect the fuel hose and fix a clip at no cost to the customer."

In the recent past, pictures surfaced of a brand new Datsun redi-GO in flames. The incident occurred in Mumbai, and the faulty fuel hose could have been the culprit. But again, we will not come to a conclusion without knowing the actual cause.

Speaking of the Datsun redi-GO, the car was launched in India during June this year, priced at Rs 2.38 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi) onward. The hatchback was initially revealed to the world in April.

Powering the redi-GO is a 799cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that makes 53bhp and 72Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and the power is sent to the front wheels.

Datsun claims a mileage of 25.17km/l, and the car has a top speed of 140km/h. The redi-GO can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 15.9 seconds and on the safety front, Datsun offers an airbag for the driver on the top variant (S).
