BEIJING, April 9 (Xinhua) -- China's top quality watchdog said on Wednesday that Japanese carmaker Toyota and its joint venture companies will recall 61,459 vehicles in China from May 8.
The vehicles include 47,636 vehicles of the REIZ model produced between Nov. 16, 2005 and Aug. 10, 2010 by Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor and 13,752 HIGHLANDERS produced by the GAC Toyota Motor between May 27, 2009 and Aug. 31, 2010.
Furthermore, 71 imported HIGHLANDERS produced between March 30,2007 and Jan. 19, 2009 are also to be recalled, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
