Recall roundup: Geely vehicles in China image

The Chinese based automaker Geely has recently announced a recall for some of its vehicles on the local auto market because of a problem with their fuel tanks.

According to the car manufacturer, 55, 018 units of the MK and MK2 vehicles produced by Geely will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the fuel tanks solved. Geely says that the reason for this recall is the size of the fuel tanks on the models mentioned above and they have size discrepancies.

Geely says that the fuel tanks may start leaking because of this and also because they are situated close to the fuel pump pipe and if this happens, the risk of a fire increases. Geely says that no reports have been received of crashes or injuries related to this issue. The fix is apparently inexpensive and can be quickly applied at the company’s dealerships. The affected cars have been produced between January 2009 and November 2010. The recall will start on the 10th of October, 2012 and it will end in March, next year.
