Renault UK recalls 22,000 Lagunas

A TOTAL of 22,000 Renault Lagunas in the UK are the subject of a recall.

According to Automotive News Europe, 230,000 Lagunas will be recalled worldwide because of an electrical problem.

Renault says the fault lies with the system that optimises the car's braking performance. The company was keen to point out that this does not mean the brakes themselves were at fault.

'We will be writing to motorists in early October to invite them to take their cars in to get fixed,' said a Renault spokesperson.

No details were released about the financial implications for Renault, Europe's fourth largest car manufacturer, although it is understood that Renault has negotiated a cost sharing arrangement with the supplier of the faulty part.
