Swedish automaker Volvo will recall 1,502 S40 sedans imported
into China because of an electronic component rust problem,
according to China's top quality watchdog.
The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection
and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said that an electronic module that
controlled gas flow in the fuel pump could be corroded when exposed
to damp. In worst case it could cause engine stalling.
The sedans to be recalled were produced between Sep. 16, 2004
and Aug. 22, 2005. Those produced afterwards did not have the
problem, AQSIQ said.
The company would replace the electronic part for free and
adjust its position to eliminate potential danger.
