MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. General Motors plans to recall 70,200 Chevrolet Aveo cars from Russia for the risk of cracks in steering hose, Izvestia daily reported on Monday.
The defect may occur when the car is used under the temperature below 40 degrees Celsius, the newspaper said citing an official with Russia’s Federal Agency on Technical Regulation (Rosstandart).
"Rosstandart received information from the GM DAT CIS company on a voluntary recall of 70,200 Chevrolet Aveo cars. The recall concerns the cars sold between November, 22, 2011 and September 11, 2015, with VIN-codes according to the application, which will be published on the website of Rosstandart," a representative with the watchdog said.
According to the publication, GM DAT CIS will notify owners of the cars, which are subject to recall, via a newsletter or by telephone about the need to bring their cars to the nearest dealership for repairs.
This is not the first time General Motors recalls vehicles in Russia.
In August 2015, GM recalled almost 11,000 Opel Mokka crossovers for the risk of defects in seatbelts.
