Dongfeng, Nissan and JLR Recall Cars in China image

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine announced that Dongfeng Motor will recall 11,277 Nissan Teana units in August.

The 11,277 Nissan Teana will be recalled beginning August 22nd, and only those produced between late June 2005 and late April 2008, due to defective sensors in their QR20 engines. At high temperatures these sensors could stall engines if the cars move at low speeds and could cause defects in fault warning lights or vehicle acceleration. Although the warranty period of three years for this model has long expired, the company recalls the cars out of a sense of responsibility, according to Jin Xiaofeng, a manager at a Dongfeng dealer in Beijing.

Nissan also announced that from August 22nd it will recall 360 imported Civilian passenger buses sold in China, due to defective front air deflectors. The recalled vehicles are only the W41 buses manufactured between November 28th, 2005 and September 30th, 2010.

Separately, Jaguar Land Rover began last Friday to recall 2,229 imported Freelander2, manufactured between September 19th, 2011 and April 20th, 2012, due to potential perforation in power steering hose that could lead to oil leak and even combustion.
