BEIJING, 5 JUNE — BMW, Volvo, and Porsche have filed plans to recall a total of more than 10,000 defective cars in China, according to the country’s customs authority.

The aging of auxiliary water pumps in some vehicles increases the risk of the cars catching fire, the German carmaker said. Sixty-six M5 models will also be recalled due to hazards in fuel pumps.

Porsche plans to recall 30 vehicles, all 918 Spyder models produced between June 23, 2014 and November 24, 2014 as the control-arm connecting shafts in the front and rear suspension may fail due to stress corrosion cracks. – XINHUA
