Cheap Chinese-made car recalled
How did cheap Chinese-made cars, found with asbestos in their engines, come to be imported to Australia.
Importer Ateco Automotive has recalled 23 thousand budget Great Wall and Chery motor vehicles which were found to contain asbestos in their engine and exhaust gaskets.
They've also instructed dealers to stop the sale of the affected cars, and recalled gaskets distributed as spare parts.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says it's monitoring the recall.
The Australian Manufacturing Workers Union says it's concerned the cheap imports managed to slip past Australia's import standards and has called for the prosecution of anyone found to have breached the ban.

Can you imagine the unions rage if it was Ford or Holden cars loaded with asbestos! What about all the chinese food so many people are woofing down in Australia, is it all being tested?? I think not! I wouldn't feed imported chinese food to my dog. Give me good Aussie tucker any day. Why are the no-standards Labor government trying to destroy reliable trusted legendary Australian food producers? Furthermore, the new Waratah Chinese made trains made for NSW when closely examined look rather shabby, cheap and nasty, hardly durable and will not last long, not like the good old Australian made trains of days gone and still running fine. I hope the chinese made Waratah trains are asbestos free? Remember imported cheaper can have much dearer consequences.Dim Sims Wednesday 15 August, 2012 - 7:35 PM
