GM recalls 1.5m cars in China

General Motors (GM) and its partner firm in China are recalling about 1.46 million cars amid concerns about their potential safety.

In one of the biggest operations of its kind to date in China, GM and Shanghai General Motors will recall their Buick and Chevrolet models.

The cars could have issues with a bracket securing the fuel oil pump, said China’s quality watchdog.

At the same time, Ford will recall up to 81,000 of its Kuga cars.

Ford and its joint venture partner, Chongqing Changan Automobile, are calling in the cars over concerns about a steering part.

Volkswagen’s Chinese unit recalled 640,309 vehicles last month to check they were using the right oil.
