China conducted a total of 85 auto recalls, covering 1.83 million flawed vehicles in 2011, up 55 percent from a year earlier, the country’s quality watchdog said Tuesday.

China-made vehicles took the lion’s share, making up 93.7 percent of all recalls, while imported cars accounted for 6.3 percent, Li Yuanping, spokesman of the General Administration of Quality Supervision (AQSIQ), Inspection and Quarantine, said at a press conference.

Last year the AQSIQ also pressed the Kumho Tires based in the Republic of Korea to recall over 300,000 tires that were confirmed to have problems, Li said.

Meanwhile, China issued three recalls of home appliances, affecting 1.84 million LCD TVs, laptop battery packs and hair dryers.

The AQSIQ also forced recalls of defective toys made by eight toy manufacturers in the provinces of Shangdong, Zhejiang and Guangdong, Li said.

China put in place a recall system for flawed cars in 2005, and set up similar systems for food and toys in 2007.

  1. If “China-made vehicles took the lion’s share, making up 93.7 percent of all recalls,..” then the media dropped the ball in 2011, because we never heard about them.
