South Korea GM Daewoo To Recall 8,872 Cars

Monday 10:46 pm ET

SEOUL April 21, 2003; Dow Jones reports that GM Daewoo Automotive & Technology Co. will recall 8,872 units of its sub-midsized model Lacetti and its compact model Kalos, the Ministry of Construction and Transportation said in a statement Tuesday.

The ministry said GM Daewoo found defects in bolts for engine parts of Lacetti cars and in the transmissions of Kalos cars.

Defective secondary bolts were used to hold engines in place in some Lacetti cars, which implies safety problems in case of a crash, it said.

GM Daewoo also discovered that control cables in the transmissions of some Kaloses come in contact with external parts of the transmissions, which could result in faulty operation.

The cars to be recalled include 8,010 units of Lacetti cars made between Nov. 26, 2002 and Feb. 17, 2003 and 862 Kalos cars manufactured between Nov. 19, 2002 and March 4, 2003.

The voluntary recall will last six months starting Thursday, the ministry said.
