Three automakers to recall vehicles over fuel pump flaws
BEIJING, (Xinhua) -- Three Chinese automakers will recall more than a half million vehicles suspected to have flawed fuel pumps, said China's top quality supervisor on Monday.
The recall involves 559,882 vehicles on the Chinese mainland manufactured between March 2005 and January 2014 by Chery Automobile, Brilliance Auto and Great Wall Motor, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine in a statement.
All these automakers used fuel pumps produced by United Automobile Electronic Systems Co., Ltd., a Shanghai-based joint venture. Flaws of the pipe flange brackets of fuel pumps may lead to gasoline leakage and potential danger, said the statement.
The recall will start from Dec. 15 and dealers of these automakers will replace the faulty parts free of charge.
