joint venture of General Motors Co <GM.N> in China will
recall 194,107 locally made Buick vehicles due to
Chinese consumer complaints about the cars' headlights,
the country's quality watchdog said on Friday.
Shanghai General Motors Co Ltd, the joint venture between GM and
Chinese automaker SAIC Motor Corp <600104.SS>, will recall its Buick

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.
