China's consumer quality watchdog has urged the manufacturer of imported Renault automobiles to recall the Megane 2.0 and Scenic 2.0 cars and take immediate action to remove potential safety hazards.

The Megane may carry a safety risk due to improperly functioning airbags, while the Scenic may have defective dashboards, according to a warning notice by the General Administration of Quality, Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).

AQSIQ called on the consumers to contact domestic dealers for inspection and repair issues and report to the entry exit inspection and quarantine organs if the problems mentioned in the notice cause accidents.

The administration also requires the entry exit inspection and quarantine organs at all levels to strengthen the supervision and management of Renault domestic dealers and repairers.
