HEFEI, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Chinese carmaker Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group Corp. Ltd. (JAC Motors) is recalling 150 of its X5 trucks over safety concerns, the State Administration for Market Regulation said Sunday.

Starting from Jan. 18, JAC Motors began recalling certain Kangling X5 vehicles produced between July 10 and August 18, 2019, as the size of a seat belt part failed to meet the quality standard of GB14166-2013 due to a loose mould in the production.

In extreme conditions, it may lead to the fracture of the buckle, thus posing threats to the safety of the passengers.

The Anhui-based automaker will inspect these cars and replace faulty parts for free, according to the administration.
