BUCHAREST -- Romanian carmaker Dacia, owned by France's Renault SA, has recalled around 2,700 of its no-frills Logan vehicles due to problems with the driver's seat, a company spokesman said on Thursday.
Dacia spokesman Silviu Sepciu said the cars, which were made between Sept. 5 and 19 and sold on the Romanian market, would be recalled to have the seat checked.
"There is a possible minor fault at the welding of the driver's seat," Sepciu said. "There are very small risks that a big shock could cause the seat to move. No fault has been noticed in these cars; this is just a precaution."
He did not give estimates for the overall cost of the recall operation.
The company launched the Logan last year as a car for developing countries, though Renault also sells the model in western Europe.
In Romania, Renault has sold over 90,000 Logan cars since the launch in September 2004.
At the beginning of this year, Dacia recalled more than 15,000 Logans due to various technical problems, at a cost of 300,000 euros ($349,700).
