PARIS (Sept. 26)—French auto maker Renault S.A. is recalling 25,000 of its Kangoo vehicles in Europe, after Groupe Michelin subsidiary Pneumatiques Kleber identified a "manufacturing anomaly" earlier this year, a Michelin spokeswoman said. The recall directly concerns 5,000 vehicles fitted with tires made at Kleber´s plant at Toul, in northeast France, between April and May this year. Another 20,000 vehicles have been included as a further precaution, the spokeswoman said. "Our quality process found something that we were not comfortable with," she said. There had been no customer complaints prior to the recall.
