The reason why 824 Australian Meganes built between April 16 and October 11 2016 are recalled is so that they can fix some words.

No kidding. 

Apparently, the Australian owner’s manual has a section about window operation and that section “contains an error in the wording and may cause the user to wrongly operate the child safety features on the rear door”.

This wording mistake can lead to the possibility of a child opening the door from the inside. OK, so the issue is real and it should be fixed. 

With the whole industry going in the eco direction, Renault will not replace the manuals. The plan is to use a marker and black out the words “and doors”.

If you are one of the owners of these cars, you will be glad to know that the fix will be free of charge. Apparently, black markers will fall under Renault’s budget. Galant, isn’t it.

You can type your VIN in the field below and check if your Renault needs intervention from the mighty black marker.
