China FAW Group Co., a state-owned automaker based in northeast China's Jilin Province, is recalling 45,406 automobiles over spark plug defects.
The recall, which will start on July 15 this year, affects the Besturn B30 cars manufactured between Sept. 18, 2015 and Nov. 27, 2016, according to a statement from the State Administration for Market Regulation.
Due to a poor match between the spark plug and ignition system, key components of the ignition system may not work normally, which can lead to vehicle vibration, engine misfire, and an inability to start the vehicle, the administration said.
In extreme cases, the engine may stall while the vehicle is running, posing safety hazards.
The company will replace the defective parts or offer a fix to the problem free of charge.
