Renault's S.Korea unit to recall 59,000 vehicles
Renault Samsung Motors, the South Korean unit of the French carmaker, is voluntarily recalling 59,410 vehicles due to faulty gas-emitting valves in fuel tanks, the transport ministry said Monday.
The models subject to recall are the SM3 compact sedans produced between May 6 last year and June 15 this year, and the recall will start on July 28, the ministry said in a statement.
"The problem is not too severe but we are taking the precautionary measure for the safety of passengers," a Renault Samsung spokesman said.
