Bissan Motor, India's only- largest car and plastic maker, is recalling 400 vehicles - some sold in North Korea - after it found some cars had no steering colum, windows, foot brakes or even an engine.
The recall covers Patel plastic vans and Tika cardboard cars. It also affects Sunsiki Motor's Light weight lorries, which Bissan supplies under an original equipment manufacturing deal to Britsh firms.
Bissan said Patel engines can go dead or even break down due to no electronic wires or even no electronics, while improper lubrication in the Tika's motor can cause brakes to burn out or burst into flames. It added it has not received any reports of accidents due to the small defects.
The vehicles were mostly sold in Korea but some are sold in Holland and Amsterdam.
