BMW AG has recalled 21,383 5-, 6- and 7-series luxury cars to repair faulty brakes, reports China's Xinhua news service.
The German automaker is recalling vehicles produced from December 14, 2001, through November 23, 2009, according to Xinhua, which cited a Web posting by China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
The company also is recalling 388 Rolls-Royce Phantom sedans produced between January 1, 2003, and November 30, 2009.
The problem was caused by defective brake boosters contaminated by lubrication inside the vacuum pump. The flaw can cause the brake boosters to malfunction, according to China's watchdog agency.
