On June 21, the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration issued the latest recall announcement. According to the announcement, SAIC General Motors Co., Ltd. has filed a recall plan with the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration in accordance with the requirements of the regulations on the Administration of recall of defective Automobile products and the measures for the implementation of regulations on the recall of defective Automobile products. The following vehicles will be recalled.


Starting from March 31, 2024, a total of 3910 Buick Enclair cars manufactured during the period from March 26, 2013 to August 10, 2016 will be recalled for the period from 2014 to 2017.

The reason for the recall is that due to manufacturing reasons, the airbag gas generator of the main driver of the vehicle within the scope of this recall may be abnormally damaged when the airbag is deployed, resulting in debris flying out, injuring the personnel in the car, and there is a safety hidden danger. In view of the above defects, SAIC General Motors Co., Ltd. will replace the main airbag assembly for vehicles within the scope of the recall free of charge, in order to eliminate safety risks.

The reason for the recall is that the tightness of the fuel pump control module decreased due to manufacturing fluctuations in the scope of the recall, and the water vapor invaded into the control module resulting in abnormal work, which in extreme cases will lead to the loss of power while the vehicle was driving. there are safety risks.

The Buick Enclair is a medium-and large-sized SUV under SAIC GM's Buick, and it is also the first model from GM's new Lambda platform. The Power Mountain is equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, but the car is not made in China, but is imported into the domestic market.

As for the Chevrolet explorer, a medium-sized SUV under SAIC GM Chevrolet, the Chevrolet explorer was first launched in 2004, and the domestic version made its debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in 2016. in November of the same year, Shanghai GM announced that the domestic Chevrolet Equinox was officially named "the explorer". The appearance of the car adopts the latest family-style front face design, and the interior adopts the same styling design as the Malibu XL. In terms of power, only two 1.5T/2.0T gasoline engines are available, with a maximum power of 172hp and 256hp respectively. The new 9-speed automatic transmission matches the 2.0T engine.

Subsequently, Chevrolet Explorer also launched the RS model and the new Redline model. On May 8, 2023, SAIC General Motors announced the official launch of the 2023 Chevrolet Explorer model with a price range of 184900-239900 yuan.

However, due to too much competition for the same class of models in China and the low volume of Chevrolet in the domestic market, Chevrolet explorers are very mediocre in terms of market sales. SAIC GM Chevrolet sales totaled 206178 vehicles in 2022, of which 22724 were sold by explorers, accounting for only 11.02 per cent of total sales, according to FIFA retail data.

Judging from the recall information, the number of recalls is not particularly high. It should be noted that the recall was carried out in the context of the defect investigation initiated by the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration. Affected by the investigation, SAIC General Motors Co., Ltd. will apply waterproof glue on the top of the fuel pump control module within the recall range free of charge, and replace the abnormal fuel pump control module to eliminate safety risks.
