The Phnom Penh Post - - BUSINESS -

VOLK­SWA­GEN will re­call al­most 5 mil­lion ve­hi­cles in China over airbag con­cerns, Chi­nese au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day, deal­ing a new blow to the Ger­man au­tomaker in the world’s largest car mar­ket. VW and its joint ven­tures with Chi­nese part­ners FAW and SAIC will start with­draw­ing 4.86 mil­lion ve­hi­cles fit­ted with po­ten­tially faulty airbags made by Ja­pan’s bank­rupt airbag gi­ant Takata from March 2018, ac­cord­ing to a Chi­nese con­sumer watch­dog. The an­nounce­ment came just 10 days af­ter VW and its lo­cal part­ners agreed to re­call 1.82 mil­lion ve­hi­cles ow­ing to a faulty fuel pump. In March Volk­swa­gen re­called nearly 680,000 Audis in China over de­fects in coolant pumps that could lead to en­gine fires, and 572,000 due to prob­lems aris­ing from leaks in the panoramic sun­roof.
