MUNICH - Renault will launch a marketing campaign in Ger-many to reverse public perceptions about the safety of its Dacia Logan.
Logan sales have slipped in Germany since the German motoring club ADAC highlighted in July a Logan allegedly turning over during a swerving maneuver.
The ADAC withdrew its test findings after it was revealed that photos of the Logan were not from a legitimate test by the organization.
Renault Germany blamed the ADAC publication of the test as the reason for slow Logan sales in Germany.
The French carmaker originally planned to sell 3,000 Logans in Germany annually. Through the end of October, Renault has sold "around 1,500," said Renault Germany spokesman Martin Zimmermann.
This week Renault dealers will begin displaying the sedan in shopping centers in 30 major German cities.
Dealers will also distribute flyers highlighting the car's value and safety rating.
