China says Aston Martin plays ‘Made in China’ blame game in its biggest recall

Article by Christian A., on February 17, 2014

As you may know already, Aston Martin recently announced that it will recall over 17,000 cars due to some Chinese parts that were using inferior counterfeit material in accelerator pedal arms. Now China’s state media launched an attack at Aston Martin saying that the British carmaker is using just a stereotype of low-quality “made in China” manufacturing just to mask its shortcomings.

Xinua news agency said in a report that what Aston Martin is doing is just a blame game and that the “made in China” is just the scapegoat. For those who don’t know, in the documents filed with a U.S. regulatory agency, Aston Martin found that Shenzhen Kexiang Mould Tool, a China subcontractor that molds the accelerator pedal arms, was using counterfeit DuPont plastic material.
