“Any affected components involved in this issue will be replaced, with all costs to be borne by Chery Corporate Malaysia,” the department’s statement continued.

All owners of the Chery Omoda 5 are advised to plan for the recall process for their vehicles to be carried out as soon as possible, and further information may be obtained by contacting the Chery Malaysia Customer Careline at +603- 2771 7070, or visit www.chery.my for more information.
