What are the defects?

The owner's manual window operation section contains an error in the wording and may cause the user to wrongly operate the child safety features on the rear door.

What are the hazards?

The rear doors may be opened from the inside by a child in the back seat. This could increase the risk of injury and or death to vehicle occupants.

What should consumers do?

The handbook requires the words 'and doors' to be blocked out with a black marker. Owners should contact their nearest Renault dealer as soon as possible to organise a suitable time to have the handbook amended while they wait. This will be free of charge.
