Renault Australia — Renault Megane IV R.S. MY2018
What are the defects?
The oil pressure solenoid valve wiring was not manufactured to the required specifications, which may lead to engine failure.
What are the hazards?
If the engine fails, the driver may experience heavier steering, loss of auxiliaries and/or need to apply much greater braking effort. This poses an increased risk of an accident and injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Renault will contact affected owners in writing and advise them to present their vehicle to a Renault dealer, to arrange an inspection, modification of the engine wiring, engine oil pressure check and replacement of the solenoid valve, where necessary.
