China Dongfeng Motor to recall 153,065 defective sedans
China's Dongfeng Motor Co. Ltd. will recall 153,065 sedans due to engine flaws starting June 12.
China's Dongfeng Motor Co. Ltd. will recall 153,065 sedans due to engine flaws starting June 12, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ)said.
The Teana sedans to be recalled were manufactured between July 1, 2004 and April 18, 2008, the product quality watchdog said.
An air tube inside the engine of the sedan may become disconnected as it was found to have substandard heat-resistance. If that happens, the engine dies.
In a report submitted to the GAQSIQ, Dongfeng promised to repair all defective vehicles and eliminate risks.
The Wuhan-based company said its franchised Dongfeng Nissan outlets will notify customers of the recall through mail or phone calls. Defective parts will be replaced free of charge.
Established in 2003 as a result of the strategic cooperation between Dongfeng Motor Corporation and Nissan Motors Co., the company has a registered capital of 16.7 billion yuan, with its equity equally shared by both parties.
