SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Yonhap) — Volvo, Toyota Motor Korea and two other companies will voluntarily recall more than 4,500 vehicles to fix faulty components, the transport ministry said Wednesday.
This is the latest in a series of recalls by carmakers in South Korea and vehicle importers due to problems with vehicle components.
The two other companies are Jaguar-Land Rover Korea, the local importer of the two British brands, and Hanbul Motors, which imports vehicles of France’s PSA Group.
The companies are recalling a combined 4,518 units in four kinds of models, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a statement.
The problems include a faulty car fuel tank cover in Volvo’s V40 compact hatchback, software problems of the dashboard system in Jaguar-Land Rover’s Range Rover SDV8 SUV, and faulty tail lamps in PSA Group’s DS7 Crossback 2.0 BlueHDi SUV, it said.
The companies will begin to provide repair and replacement services on Wednesday. Vehicle owners can contact or visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, the ministry said.
