German luxury car maker BMW said it is set to sell another record number of cars in China this year, an upbeat outlook accompanied by a separate announcement that it would recall over 25,000 defective cars in the nation in 2014.

China's consumer quality watchdog said in a statement BMW would recall 25,254 cars in China, the world's biggest automobile market, from Feb 17 next year due to a faulty power brake system that compromises safety.

Somehow the words "China" and "Safety" seem to be an oxymoron.

There is still an enormous group of people in China that use bicycles as their transportation. Any car is an upgrade for them, so auto sales there would be a hugely growing market.

China will take a much dimmer view of vehicle recalls than the West.

The BMW would still have base brakes just not power assisted brakes, fix the issue and move on.
