Record number of cars recalled in China

Beijing, Dec 21 (IANS) A record number of vehicles were recalled for technical faults in China in 2015.

As of December 18, 76 automakers had recalled 5.55 million vehicles, said Yan Fengmin, a department director in charge of law enforcement with the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), on Monday.

Over 25 million vehicles have been recalled since China introduced the recall system in 2004, according to Yan.

Engine problems were the main reason for the recalls, followed by airbag and seat belt defects, and electrical failures.
