Dongfeng Yueda Kia to recall 69,324 vehicles over faulty engines

Dongfeng Yueda Kia, a joint venture between China's Dongfeng Motor Group Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Yueda Investment Co. Ltd. and South Korea-based Kia Motors Corp., is set to recall 69,324 vehicles in the Chinese market over a safety concern due to faulty engines, Xinhua News reported, citing a statement from China's State Administration for Market Regulation.

The affected cars, if continuously driven short distances in low temperatures, pose the risk of engine malfunction or even damage, as their oil levels may rise, the Chinese regulator said.

The recall, involving KX5 models with GAMMA1.6T-GDI engines, manufactured between Jan. 19, 2016, and Jan. 20, 2019, will begin Oct. 25.

The automaker will upgrade the engine control unit and replace the thermostat valves of the affected vehicles free of charge to eliminate safety risks, the regulator said.
