    Lost in Translation??

    As most know of the recall regarding the exhaust tips, but check out this slap in the face.

    BEIJING, Feb. 28 -- Three recall announcements for defective vehicles launched in the Chinese market were released by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) this week.

    The recall involves select Porsche Carreras, FAW Huali Terios and Nissan X-Trail SUVs.

    As the first automaker to recall faulty vehicles sold in the mainland this year, French luxury sports car manufacturer Porsche handed in the recall report to GAQSIQ six days ago.

    The recall involves 60 imported Carrera S (997) sports cars built between April 24, 2004 and October 21, 2005, for potentially defective exhaust pipe tips.

    The exhaust pipe tips fitted to the tailpipes of these cars might have inadequate welding seams. Should these welding seams fail, the tips can come loose and fall off. Approximately 30 instances have been reported worldwide but none were in China, the company said.

    Ouch

    I thought Porsche was Italian.

    Since the Porsche workers are going on strike just after getting big bonuses, I guess it was assumed they're French.

    Heh, from the huge China the european countries must look so cramped together, no wonder they mix them up

    General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) Sounds like the place you go to be tested for a disease.

    That's just a wicked rumor started by Ferrari, because they didn't want ppl to realize that Porsche cars are built to higher quality standards.
