BEIJING - Changan Ford Automobile Co Ltd, a joint venture between China's Changan Automobile and American automaker Ford, on Friday announced the recall of Focus sedans due to a fuel leak.
The company is calling back 191,770 vehicles manufactured between 2009 and 2012 from Friday, China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said Sunday in a statement.
Refueling hoses of affected vehicles may crack due to the use of substandard materials, which could cause fuel leakage in extreme cases, according to the statement.
Changan Ford said it will replace flawed parts free of charge.
