Ford de­lays re­call of Lin­coln MKX

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Ford (China) has post­poned its planned re­call of Lin­coln MKX ve­hi­cles for three months due to de­lays in the de­liv­ery of re­pair com­po­nents, ac­cord­ing to China’s top qual­ity watch­dog. The re­call, in­volv­ing 316 im­ported cars made from June 11, 2014 to July 31, 2014, will start on Sept 30, three months later than the ini­tial planned date. Due to de­fects in the pre-ten­sion­ing sys­tem, the seat belts may not func­tion prop­erly in ac­ci­dents, which is a safety risk, ac­cord­ing to Ford. The com­pany urged own­ers of the ve­hi­cles to con­tact deal­ers as soon as the re­call starts to have the com­po­nent re­placed. Ear­lier of­fi­cial data showed global and Chi­nese au­tomak­ers re­called 4.49 mil­lion de­fec­tive ve­hi­cles in the first five months of this year, com­pared with 11.34 mil­lion dur­ing the whole of 2016. re­port com­piled by Aus­tralia’s largest bank, the Com­mon­wealth Bank of Aus­tralia, looks at eight key eco­nomic met­rics to de­ter­mine the per­for­mance of each state and ter­ri­tory, in­clud­ing eco­nomic growth, re­tail spend­ing, un­em­ploy­ment, and pop­u­la­tion growth. In the lat­est it­er­a­tion, NSW man­aged to hold onto its top spot, with the re­port stat­ing that it was the “best per­form­ing econ­omy,” with rank­ings at the top, or near to, for all the as­sessed in­di­ca­tors. This was good news for the NSW govern­ment, and its Trea­surer Do­minic Per­rot­tet said on Mon­day that NSW is ben­e­fit­ting from its “mas­sive on­cein-a-gen­er­a­tion” ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture works un­der­way in the state.
