French automaker Renault has started to recall more than 60,000 cars exported to China over problems with their fuel level sensors, China's consumer quality watchdog said.
Renault's Chinese subsidiary began recalling 61,508 Koleos sport utility vehicles produced between December 2008 and July 2012, Xinhua reported.
The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said fuel level sensors in the cars cannot deliver correct readings after long periods of use and are unsafe to use.
Renault will change the defective sensors for free.
Another 5,097 imported Koleos vehicles in China will be recalled over welding problems in the vehicles' lower front swing arm.
