Chinese government getting serious about vehicle recalls
What's more, automakers could face revocation of their production licenses if they knowingly conceal defects or refuse to stop selling faulty vehicles. Currently, automakers in China operate under guidelines enacted some six years ago. The outgoing standards only impose a tiny fine of between $1,600 and $4,800 for failing to recall vehicles. Between 2004 and 2011, manufacturers in the country recalled some 6.2 million units.
