Jaguar Land Rover's China unit to re­call cars over safety wor­ries

The Pak Banker - - 6BUSINESS -

BEIJING: Jaguar Land Rover's Chi­nese sub­sidiary will re­call 337 cars be­cause of sub­stan­dard fix­ings in their brakes and steer­ing boxes, China's na­tional prod­uct qual­ity watch­dog said. The Gen­eral Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Qual­ity Su­per­vi­sion, In­spec­tion and Quar­an­tine said in a state­ment on its web­site that Jaguar Land Rover's China unit is re­call­ing 190 2012 Evoque and Free­lander ve­hi­cles pro­duced on June 11 this year. The agency's state­ment said the re­call was prompted by con­cerns that sub­stan­dard fix­ings in the ve­hi­cles' rear brake calipers may lead to brakes fail­ing and sud­den tire de­fla­tion.

The agency said another 147 2012 Evoque and 2013 Evoque ve­hi­cles made be­tween Oc­to­ber 20 and Septem­ber 18 will also be re­called due to prob­lems in their steer­ing boxes, which con­tain "se­cu­rity risks".

Jaguar Land Rover, the Bri­tish lux­ury mar­que owned by In­dia's Tata Mo­tors (NSI:TATAMO­TORS), has re­lied on strong de­mand over the past year from emerg­ing mar­kets such as China for its lux­ury SUVs and sleek sedans to off­set slug­gish growth in de­vel­oped mar­kets.
