SEOUL, July 12 (Yonhap) -- Importers of Chrysler and Porsche vehicles will voluntarily recall more than 5,500 vehicles to fix faulty parts, the transport ministry said Thursday.

FCA Korea, the local importer and distributor of Chrysler vehicles, said its recall, set to begin Friday, will affect 5,398 units of four different models -- Chrysler's 200, 300C, Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee cars.

The affected vehicles, produced between January 2004 and April 2018, have problems with their engine control software and lower control arms, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said.

Porsche Korea said it will begin recalling 114 Porsche Panameras on Thursday to repair a faulty component connected to an anti-roll bar.

Separately, Honda Korea said it would begin recalling 1,334 Honda Benly 110 scooters on Thursday over a problem with a part near the fuel tank that could cause the engine to shut down.
