General Motors (GM) of China has decided to recall 9,862 imported Cadillac SRX SUVs due to defective gearboxes, China’s consumer quality watchdog said Wednesday.
The recall targets the 2011 model produced between Feb 2 and June 23, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said in a statement on its website.
Flaws in the gearboxes may result in malfunctions when shifting gears. The SUVs may not be able to restart or be driven properly under extreme circumstances, according to the statement.
Shanghai GM will contact relevant consumers and conduct inspections and replace the defective parts free of charge.
