Coverage from China Central Television recently excoriated several foreign automakers for problems with their vehicles and dealers overcharging for repairs. The broadcast apparently worked because China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine has requested a recall from Jaguar Land Rover to fix a problem CCTV reported on.

JLR is recalling 36,451 Evoques from 2014 and 2015 in China to fix their gearboxes, according to Reuters. The automaker reportedly has a software update to remedy issues with poor shift quality, noise and not being to get into Drive in some cases. The company is also extending the transmission's warranty for affected owners there to seven years from the time of purchase or about 149,000 miles, whichever is first.

The CCTV investigation also went after Nissan, Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz dealers for allegedly overcharging for parts and repairs.
