The LPG tank of certain Renault and Dacia models is poorly welded, which can result in a release of gas into the passenger compartment and therefore cause a fire risk.
If you own a Renault or Dacia running on LPG, your car may soon have to go to the garage.
According to information relayed by Rappel Conso, the site specializing in dangerous product alerts, several vehicles from both brands will be recalled due to fire risk.
The recall notification was issued on Friday, November 10 and exclusively concerns cars equipped with a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tank. The Renault models affected by this recall are the Clio V and Captur II, sold between February 6 and July 3, 2023.
On the Dacia side, the affected models are the Duster, Logan III and Sandero III, on sale between February 6 and June 13, 2023.
The reason for this recall is a manufacturing defect linked to improper welding of the liquefied petroleum gas tank. This defect can lead to the release of gas into the passenger compartment, thus creating a risk of fire, explains Rappel Conso.
The product would also not comply with the regulation relating to the approval and market surveillance of motor vehicles and their trailers, as well as systems, components and separate technical entities intended for these vehicles.

Remember that the liquefied petroleum gas is the third most used fuel in France after gasoline and diesel. It is favored by certain motorists due in particular to their lower environmental impact and their advantageous price at the pump. However, these models are a little more expensive to purchase and their maintenance is more expensive than a thermal car.
