Asbestos Made Car Parts Found in 25k Chinese Vehicles

Asbestos Awareness TrainingApproximately 25,000 cost-efficient  Chinese cars will reportedly be recalled in Australia because some parts were discovered to contain asbestos. The company responsible, Great Wall and Chery may be compelled to recall almost all the vehicles sold- which are believed to contain the deadly substance in engine and exhaust gaskets. The importers  in Australia, Ateco Automotive, has been aware of the issue for “a period of months”  and has been devising a plan with government departments to deal with the asbestos contamination.

The plan is expected to be announced within the coming days. Despite the asbestos issues  , it is believed that the gaskets (made out of asbestos), may not be replaced because of the complex task of replacing them. In fact according to Ateco, many will not be need to be replaced through the life the vehicle. Source:
