GM recalls 939,000 cars to fix faulty fuel tanks
Reuters | 2017/12/5

BEIJING -- One of General Motors¡¯ Chinese ventures will recall nearly a million vehicles because of fuel tank problems, the country¡¯s quality watchdog said. It is the latest in a spate of major recalls in China over the last few months.

SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile Co. is a three-way partnership of SAIC Motor Corp., General Motors and Guangxi Automobile Group, formerly known as Wuling Motors.


The recall of 938,686 vehicles covers two models of the joint venture¡¯s popular Baojun cars, an entry-level brand that produced sales of more than 2 million vehicles last year.


GM did not immediately comment on the recall announced by Chinese regulators on Friday

Automakers have issued a number of major recalls in China this year. In September, China¡¯s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine announced that GM would recall more than 2.5 million vehicles to fix faulty airbag inflators. 

That followed a similar recall of 4.9 million vehicles by Volkswagen and its Chinese joint ventures.
