Mercedes, VW to recall 1m cars
HONG KONG: German carmakers Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen (VW) would recall nearly one million vehicles in China, according to the country’s quality regulator.
Mercedes Benz will recall nearly 400,000 vehicles of different models produced between May 2015 and last month due to concerns that parts of the ignition circuitry could overheat under some extreme conditions, according to a statement posted on the website of China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine late on Tuesday.
It said Volkswagen would also recall more than 572,000 vehicles in China to address potential problems arising from leaks in the panoramic sunroof.
It came after a recall announced earlier this month affecting nearly 680,000 of VW’s premium Audi cars in China over defects in coolant pumps that could lead to engine fires. AFP
