Among General Motors’ China ventures will recall almost a million automobiles because of fuel tank problems, the nation’s quality watchdog said on Friday, the latest in a wave of significant vehicle recalls in China over the last couple of months.

SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile is a three-way tie-up between SAIC Motor Corp, General Motors and Guangxi Automobile Group, formerly referred as Wuling Motors.

The recall of the 938,686 vehicles consists two models of the venture’s popular Baojun vehicles, a high-volume, entry-level brand for the Chinese market, which sold over 2 million vehicles in 2016.

General Motors did not right away respond to a request for comment.

This year has seen a range of major vehicle recalls in China, the world’s biggest vehicle market.

China’s quality watchdog stated in September GM and its China ventures would recall over 2.5 million vehicles due to air bag concerns. That followed a comparable 4.86 million vehicle recall by Volkswagen and its Chinese joint ventures.

GM produces vehicles in the country through a joint venture with SAIC, the nation’s largest automaker, as well as the three-way venture that is now working on an electric battery car called the Baojun E100 to help fulfill rigorous new-energy vehicle quotas.
