Shanghai General Motors Co Ltd, the joint
venture between GM and Chinese automaker SAIC Motor Corp, will
recall its Buick Excelle GT cars due to a glitch which in some
cases does not allow the high beam to be turned off, the General
Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine
said in statement on its website.
The watchdog added it will closely monitor the recall, which
applies to cars made between October 2009 to July 2012, and will
urge fresh recalls if similar defects are found in other cars.
A China-based GM spokeswoman confirmed the recall and said the
incident is not part of the auto maker's recent global recalls.
The No. 1 U.S. automaker is grappling with a series of safety
problems that have prompted the recall of 20 million cars, with
Chief Executive Mary Barra saying more recalls are possible.
