An official with Suzhou’s top regulator on quality has vowed more efforts to investigate potential flaws after Mercedes-Benz (China) announced its recalling of 20,779 vehicles in China over defective seat belts.

Lu Quanrong, director of the Department of Supervision on Inspection at the Suzhou Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, said efforts will be strengthened to collect and analyze information, launch an investigation into the potential defect and supervise the car recall process.

Lu promised to look into cars and products in a timely manner in case of potential flaws. He also said companies that fail to fulfill obligations to recall problematic products, refuse to cooperate in investigations, and conceal or misreport information, will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

According to the official website of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, Mercedes-Benz (China) Automotive Sales Co. and Beijing Benz Automotive Co. filed the recall over problematic seat belts, which result from deviations in products from suppliers and pose a potential safety hazard in accidents.

The recall will start on March 9 with the car makers replacing faulty parts for free.
