General Motors' massive recall of cars with defective ignition switches and power steering failures has not impacted the automaker's business in China, according to President Dan Ammann.
"We haven't seen any impact - I haven't heard a lot of discussion around that in my couple of days here," Ammann told CNBC on the sidelines of the Beijing auto show on Sunday.
When asked whether the company was doing anything specific in China to counter any potential fallout from the recall debacle, he said, "nothing specific, other than just doing what we're doing every day, which is making sure that we put the customers first from a service and product perspective."
Since February, GM has recalled 2.6 million vehicles globally due to concerns about ignition switches that unexpectedly turn off engines during operation and leave airbags, power steering and power brakes inoperable. At least 13 deaths have been linked to the defect.
Separately, at the end of March, GM recalled another 1.5 million vehicles worldwide due to issues related to a sudden loss of power steering capabilities.
Government documents released over the weekend showed the company waited years to recall nearly 335,000 Saturn Ions for power steering failures despite getting thousands of consumer complaints and more than 30,000 warranty repair claims.
