South Korean authorities have ordered Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle, an Indian-controlled joint venture in Seoul, to recall around 3,000 trucks for safety reasons, officials said on Sunday.
The recall was due to a problem discovered in the auxiliary part of the steering system in Tata Daewoo trucks made from August 16, 2004 to the end of 2007, the transportation ministry said in a statement.
The recall affects 3,276 vehicles, the ministry said.
Free maintenance and repair services should be available to correct the safety defect at Tata Daewoo shops nationwide starting tomorrow, it said.
Tata Daewoo was launched in 2004 when India's top automaker, Tata Motors, purchased South Korean truck maker Daewoo Commercial Vehicle.
