SAO PAULO, Brazil (SafetyAlerts) -
The Brazilian subsidiary of
French automaker Renault is reported to have said it is recalling more than

The recall, which will affect a total of 64,104 vehicles made in Brazil
between 1994 and 2001, is Renault's first since it started production in
Brazil in the mid-1990s.

them to lose efficiency.

fitted with air conditioners and 1.6-liter engines as well as 28,915 Scenic,
Megane, Trafic and Laguna units.
