A "crossover" ?martin_krpan said:Great Wall 4G69 Hover goes on sale this month.
June 2, 2008 - Great Wall Motor will launch nationwide this month the new edition of its Hover CUV (crossover utility vehicle) equipped with the Mitsubishi 2.4L SOHC 4G64 engine. The all-new Hover was unveiled at the 2008 Beijing auto show in April..................
source: Gasgoo.comNovember 25, 2008 - Great Wall Motor, China's greatest maker of SUVs and pickups, has decided to recall 17,916 Hover CUVs (crossover utility vehicles) starting November 25 to fix the defects of their steering gears, said xinhuanet.com today. These vehicles were made by Great Wall Motor between April 1, 2005 and July 28, 2006.
According to the recall report submitted by Great Wall Motor to China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ), some of these Hover CUVs made during that period have oil leakage from their steering gears and oil blockage in the left cavity, which leads to abnormal oil pressure of the power booster and difficult steering for bend turning. This may cause safety hazards when the vehicle is taking the corners.
Great Wall Motor has promised to check and replace the steering gears of all the recalled Hover CUVs for free to remove any possible safety hazards. The company will ask its Hover CUV customers to deliver their cars to the nearby repair shops of Great Wall Motor for the steering gear replacement.
Great Wall Hover CUV customers can also call the hotline of the quality watchdog GAQSIQ or visit its website for more information on the Hover CUV recall.
The Great Wall Hover CUV is sold in several countries. It was the first Chinese car to be exported in large quantities to Western Europe in 2006, when 30,000 Hovers were shipped to Italy. The Hover CUVs are also widely used by China's public facilities for highway and electricity supervisions.
