Mitsubishi Motors, one of Japan's major car producers, will recall 9,390 vehicles in China from March 7 for brake system problems, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) announced on Friday.
The problematic vehicles include 9,108 Outlander EX models produced in the period from Nov 7, 2007 to Dec 5, 2008, and 282 Lancer EX vehicles produced from Oct 3, 2008 to Nov 20, 2008.
The report said the brake vacuum booster of the cars could fail to function because of inside valve defects, posing a potential danger.
The GAQSIQ said Mitsubishi vehicle owners could have their cars examined and repaired free of charge at the company's service centers across the country.
The Japanese auto-maker recalled 12,985 vehicles last December, including 6,090 Grandis and 6,895 Outlander EX models, imported to China as the brake lights had problems because of a short circuit in the switch.
