Due to a calibration error in the engine management controller, the after-treatment system for nitrogen oxides (NOx) is progressively saturated with sulphur. This leads to bad functioning of the nitrogen oxides (NOx) trap, reducing its efficiency in decontaminating NOx emissions.
The recall concerns vehicles with 1.5 dCi 110 hp engine manufactured between the start of production and 2 July 2015.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Renault dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
Check the vehicle's history
UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
