Japanese auto maker Subaru will recall 70 Tribeca sport utility vehicles (SUVs) sold in China over door safety flaws, China's top quality watchdog said here Monday.

The recall was made due to the vehicle's door lock defects, especially the front door. The front door could open itself when the driver operates the front window, and cause potential traffic accidents, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) in a statement on its official website.

The recall for repair in China will start from Tuesday and involve vehicles produced from May 28 last year to March 8 this year, according to the GAQSIQ.

Subaru recalled 1,135 Tribeca SUVs in China over control system flaws in January last year.
