General Motors recalls cars in China to replace bracket


BEIJING (AP) -- General Motors and its main Chinese partner will recall about 1.5 million cars in China to replace a bracket that secures a fuel pump.

China's product quality agency says the recall affects 1.2 million Buick Excelles that were made from 2006 through 2012.  In addition, the recall affects 250,000 Chevrolet Sails produced between April 2009 and October 2011, as well as some made last year.

The agency says the bracket to be replaced might crack an in extreme cases cause a fuel leak.

The recall is GM's second this year in China.  In May, the government announced a recall of 2,653 imported Cadillac SRX sport utility vehicles to adjust nuts on wheels that it said might loosen due to torque.
