BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- BMW is to recall from the Chinese market 10,234 of its 7 Series sedans installed with a system that allows key-less access and starts, China's top quality watchdog said on Wednesday.
A fault in the "Comfort Access System" may trigger safety hazards, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, with which BMW filed the recall notice.
The recall, starting on March 24, involves 8,676 cars produced between March 10, 2004 and July 31, 2008. These cars can suffer faults when started with the Comfort Access System.
The doors of the other 1,558 vehicles, produced between March 1, 2004 and July 8, 2008, have faulty locks that may appear to be locked but actually not, which means the doors may open unexpectedly on bumpy roads.
