Japanese auto maker Subaru will recall 1,135 Tribeca sport utility vehicles (SUVs) it sold in China over control system flaws, said China's quality supervisor here Monday.
A sensor defect in the dynamic control system may cause the vehicle to run unsteadily and even break away from its driver's control, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ).
It remained unclear whether the problem had resulted in any crashes or injuries in China. Subaru is recalling a total of 5,130Tribeca units worldwide for the same flaw.
The recall in China will start from Tuesday and involve vehicles produced between February and November in 2008, said the GAQSIQ.
