GM in China announces recall of 20,000 Cadillac and Camaro vehicles

Nearly 20,000 imported Cadillac SRX sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and Chevrolet Camaro vehicles have been recalled by General Motors Co. and its main Chinese partner.

The recall of 19,836 Cadillac and Camaro vehicles in China was announced by GM and its main Chinese partner on Friday. About the reason leading to the recall of the mentioned vehicles, GM said that the recall has been issued to carry out the replacement of faulty seat bolts.

Despite the fact that GM has not disclosed the exact number of each of the two vehicles being recalled, the automaker has said that the seat bolt defect in the under recall Cadillac and Camaro vehicles can potentially allow the seats to get descended to their lowest position; thereby resulting in a possible safety hazard.

GM's Friday announcement of recall of nearly 20,000 Cadillac and Camaro vehicles in China marks the automaker's third recall in the country in the last 14 months.

In the previous recall announced in China in December 2013, GM and its main Chinese partner had recalled 1.5 million vehicles to replace a fuel pump bracket. Before that, in May 2013, the companies had recalled imported SRX sport utility vehicles for adjusting nuts on their wheels.
