BEIJING, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- U.S. automaker General Motors Co. and its Chinese joint venture Shanghai GM will recall 993 vehicles in China, the country's consumer quality watchdog said Friday.

The vehicles being recalled include 124 Opel Antara SUVs and 869 Chevrolet Captiva SUVs, which were all manufactured between Aug. 26 and Sept. 15, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said in an online statement.

In reports submitted to the AQSIQ, the automakers said a faulty joint in the vehicles' fuel tank filler tubes may cause the tubes to become disconnected, with oil leaks possible in extreme situations.

The automakers said they will notify customers about the recall and replace affected cars with new oil tanks.
