Concerns that the Chery J11 may not provide adequate protection in the event of a side-impact have prompted an Australian recall of the model.
Affecting a total of 1664 Chery J11 vehicles sold in Australia are affected by the recall, which is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
The ACCC recall notice advising that in the event of a side impact, the vehicle may not perform to the manufacturer’s required specifications.
The side impact capabilities of the Chery vehicle may not adequately protect the occupants in the event of an accident.
Owners are advised to contact their dealership for removal of both front seats from the vehicle and replacement of the backrest assembly on each seat.
Additional items will be installed in the centre console and the side pillars.
Sold nationally, the owners of affected Chery J11 vehicles will be contacted by letter.
