U.S. automaker Chrysler will recall 60,720 vehicles exported to China to fix various problems that could pose safety risks, China's top quality watchdog said on Friday.

The recall affects 49,754 Chrysler's Compass and Patriot vehicles manufactured between Oct. 14, 2009 and July 18, 2012, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement.

The company will replace their air bag control modules, which were inadvertently programmed with software that may compromise air bag deployment.

The recall also includes Chrysler's 300C models manufactured between Aug. 8, 2012 and Nov. 14, 2012, covering 947 vehicles with faulty warning lights in the dashboards, according to the statement.

In addition, Chrysler will also recall 10,019 imported Jeep Wranglers in China manufactured between Aug. 12, 2011 and Feb. 23, 2013.

The vehicles in question have faulty designs that may lead to fuel leakage and increase the risk of fire, the statement said.

Problems with the recalled vehicles will be fixed by Chrysler China free of charge.
