Two automobile giants BMW and Ferrari Maserati will begin recalling some of their vehicles in the Chinese mainland soon, which analysts said demonstrates the companies are paying more attention to the China market.

BMW China will recall 177 imported BMW, 164 Mini Cooper and 73 Rolls-Royce Ghost cars produced between March and August last year due to defective electronic pumps, China's top quality watchdog, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, announced late Friday. The recall will start on April 24.

The recall statement said the electronic pump cases could crack, causing short circuits and pump failures. The defect may even cause fire in some circumstances.

Wang Jing, a public relations executive at BMW, told the Global Times Sunday that authorized dealers will call affected car owners to replace the faulty pumps for free, but she was not certain how long the whole process would take.

Separately, Italian luxury car maker Ferrari Maserati will recall four Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale with four-point seat belts in the mainland from Friday, because the seat belts fail to meet specifications.

"Auto recall is a normal phenomenon for a mature carmaker, which proves that the carmaker is showing its responsibility toward consumers," Chen Guangzu, committee member of the China Auto Industry Consultancy Commission, told the Global Times Sunday.
