French auto maker PSA Peugeot Citroen is recalling 68 cars sold in China because of gearbox flaws, China's quality watchdog said on Wednesday.
The cars, all manufactured in France last year, include 34 Peugeot 206CC convertibles made between Feb. 2 and Feb. 27 and 34 Citroen C5R sedans (2.0 liters) produced between Jan. 30 and March 3.
The French auto giant will replace the torque converters and heat exchangers free of charge, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said.
Earlier this month, the Chinese joint venture between the French auto maker Dongfeng Peugeot-Citroen Auto Co., recalled 5,609 of its 206 automatics for the same problems.
Recalled were Chinese-made 206 models produced between Jan. 22 and July 5 2006.
