BMW pulls 232,000 defectives autos
(04-02 19:05)

German luxury automaker BMW will recall more than 232,000 vehicles in China due to an engine part defect that could pose a safety hazard, China's quality watchdog said today.
A total of 232,098 cars, including both imported ones and those manufactured by its joint venture in China, will be recalled from June 18, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection & Quarantine said in a statement.
The government agency said bolts attached to the variable valve timing system in the engines of some cars may become loose or even break, leading to a possible engine malfunction and posing safety risks.
BMW (China) Trading Automotive, which imported vehicles, and joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive will replace the defective bolts for free in the affected cars, which were produced between June 2009 and June 2013, AQSIQ said.—AFP
