General Motors and its Chinese partners have announced their second recall in the People's Republic this year, following a 2,653-unit recall of the Cadillac SRX earlier this year. This latest recall affects nearly 1.5 million cars built between 2006 and 2012. It's not explicitly stated, but as there's no movement from the US NHTSA, we suspect that the cars in question were all Chinese-built rather than imports.

The vast majority of the affected vehicles are Buick Excelles (pictured), with 1.2 million units being recalled over a faulty bracket that's meant to secure the fuel pump. The Excelles in question were built between 2006 and 2012, while an additional 250,000 Chevrolet Sail superminis, built between April 2009 and October 2011, are being recalled for a similar reason.

According to the PRC's Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the faulty bracket could crack and potentially cause a fuel leak.

      > we suspect that the cars in question were all Chinese-built rather than imports. Korean cars, built in China, and branded with a US semi-luxury marque. Also, not sold within the US.

      How bad does a car have to be to get recalled in CHINA? Typical GM: Gulag Motors.

        You know the Excelle is sold as the Verano in the states? Just saying...

      So, will the Cruze and the Verano be getting recalled also? Common fuel tank designs, but it might be a local supplier issue?
