China's industrial quality watchdog ordered Friday the recall of more than 47,000 Chevrolet cars due to a faulty brake fluid reservoir.

The recall concerns Chevrolet Aveo sedans made this year, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a notice on its website.

The agency said the alarm system built into the brake fluid reservoir may fail to give the driver a timely warning that fluid levels are low.

General Motors said it saw record sales in China in April, despite a broader slowdown in the world's biggest car market.

GM sold 227,217 vehicles in April, up 11.7 percent from the same month last year, it said in a statement. GM also registered a sales record for the month of March.

For the first four months of the year, GM's China sales rose 9.4 percent year-on-year to 972,369 units.

China is the world's largest auto market after overtaking the United States in 2009.
