China - Shanghai General Motors (GM) is recalling 2,065 Chevrolet Captivas imported from South Korea due to steering malfunctions, says China's quality supervision agency.

A venture between General Motors Corp and China's SAIC Motor Corp, Shanghai GM's sports utility vehicles made by GM Daewoo Automotive and Technology did not meet quality standards, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIC) on its website.

Though Shanghai GM has not received any customer complaints about defects, they are currently contacting the car owners to repair the vehicles, reports Reuters.

Due to several recalls worldwide by Toyota Motor Corp that affected more than 8.5 million vehicles, quality issues in the automobile industry have been placed in the spotlight.

As government incentives continue to fuel auto sales in China, Shanghai GM sold 58,182 cars in February, an increase in 66% compared to a year earlier.
