Almost 24,000 budget-priced Chinese cars have been recalled over asbestos fears, but instead of being fixed immediately, they will have warning stickers attached.
In a decision that has been labelled “disgraceful” by the car repair industry, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said it would monitor the recall of Chery and Great Wall vehicles with engines and exhaust gaskets containing the potentially deadly material, but not force the manufacturers to replace all the asbestos parts straight away.
However, customers can request that the parts be replaced. If they don’t, their cars will simply have a warning sticker placed in the engine bay at the next service.
