Four auto companies are to recall more than 1.3 million cars with safety risks, China's quality authority said on Monday.
Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co will start to recall 533,350 CR-V utility vehicles produced between April 2006 and Jan 2012 on July 31, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said.
Guangqi Honda Automobile Co will begin the recall of 382,090 cars it made between 2011 and last year on the same date, including vehicles with brand names such as Fit, City and Everus, the administration said.
The cars made by the two companies may have malfunctions with their air bags and may have safety risks when they work, the administration said.
Toyota Motor (China) Investment Co and Tianjin Faw Toyota Motor Co will start to recall 433,338 RAV4 cars on Mar 31, including more than 13,000 imported ones, as flaws with the back seats in some cars may cause danger to passengers if accidents occur.
The companies will fix the problems for free, the administration said.
