GM recalls cars in South Korea

General Motors Co. is recalling nearly 60,000 automobiles in South Korea due to potential problems with steering wheels, fuel hoses and seats, the company’s local unit and the government said on 21 March.

The recall of 58,696 vehicles began on 22 March and covers four models manufactured in South Korea, said Kim Byeong-soo, a spokesman for GM Daewoo Auto&Technology Co., the country’s third largest automaker.

According to Kim, recalls in other countries where some vehicles were exported under the Chevrolet and Opel brands will be decided and announced later in accordance with local rules. He said China has already announced some recalls, though he didn’t immediately have details.
