Great Wall Motors has recalled more than 900 X240 compact SUVs because of a possible leak in the hydraulic brake line.
According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, the leak could be caused by the lower section of the steering column coming into contact with the front-right hydraulic brake pipe because of the small clearance between the two.
Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by the manufacturer and are advised to see their local dealer for an inspection and, if necessary, a replacement brake pipe.
The issue has been created by the incorrect fitment of a brake pipe on 922 2010 model X240s in the factory.
The recall does not affect the recently launched facelift model.
Last month, 58 X240s were sold in WA taking the annual total for the first four months of the year to 185. This puts it ahead of competitors such as the Ford Escape, Holden Captiva 5, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Subaru Outback and Suzuki Grand Vitara.
The facelift model is powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 100kW and 200 Newton metres of torque mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
