China-Suzuki Venture Recalls 10,000 Cars

Feb. 5, 2010
The Alto models are being recalled due to fuel filter problems.

A Chinese joint venture with Japan's Suzuki car maker is to recall over 10,000 of its small Alto models due to fuel filter problems, the state's quality standards agency said on Feb. 5.

The recall applies to 10,326 cars made by Chongqing Chang'an Suzuki Automobile Co. between July 6 last year and January 17 this year.

Improperly made fuel filters pose a risk of leaks and thus raise safety concerns about the cars, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said.
