Porsche, Ford, Subaru to Recall Over 130,000 Cars in China

(Yicai Global) March 27 -- Subaru, Porsche Automobil Holding and  Ford Motor have announced product recalls in China totaling 134,000  vehicles, according to statements from the country's market regulator. 

Subaru of China has asked for customers to return 130,000  imported Forester, Subaru XV and Impreza models from April 26, making up  the lion's share of the three recalls. The Beijing-based unit cited  issues with the cars' contact system for brake light switches, meaning  they may not work as intended which could lead to rear-end collisions.

Porsche China Motors has recalled 728 vehicles covering three  models. From April 8, Porsche will recall 505 2018-version Panamera  executive cars due to improper soldering inside the gateway control  unit, which may cause error messages in the instrument panel and affect  ignition.

The German-based high-performance carmaker also recalled 718 and  911 series sportscars totaling 223 as their side airbags will not  deploy normally thus increasing the risk of injury for passengers.

Ford Motor China has recalled 610 Ford Edge sport utility  vehicles as electronic engine throttles may lead to stalling in extreme  cases, posing safety hazards.
