BMW, in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued several recalls recently.
BMW has issued two recalls recently. The first recall affects 504,545 BMW vehicles, including some models of 2008-2012 BMW 1-Series (above) coupes and convertibles, 2007-2011 BMW 3-Series coupes, convertibles, sedans and sport wagons and 2009-2011 BMW Z4 cars (below). All affected cars are being recalled due to the possibility of a degraded positive battery cable and the corresponding terminal, which could cause high current flow and heat, resulting in breaking the connection and causing a loss of electrical power, which could result in the car stalling. In addition, some of the 2007-2010 BMW X5 models equipped with the V8 engine have been recalled due to a possible leak of the brake vacuum pump, possibility resulting in leaking lubricating oil into the hose, causing a loss of power assist braking. 30,625 cars are affected by this recall.
Owners of all cars affected by recalls will be notified by mail by the manufacturer. Consumers who are concerned that their car is affected can find more information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by searching for their car here or by calling the toll-free number in their owner's manual.
