Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle, a Sino-Japanese joint venture, has launched a recall of 84,200 autos due to an oil leaking defect, state media reported on Tuesday.

The recall was launched on Saturday and covers 69,285 Sylphy cars produced from January 2006 to July 2008, and 14,915 Qashqai compact sports utility vehicles made between August 2007 and July 2008, the Global Times said.

The defect could cause vehicles to leak oil when driven with heavy loads for a long period of time, the newspaper said, citing customs.

Dongfeng Motors, China's fourth largest automaker by sales, also has a joint venture with France's PSA Peugeot-Citroen.
