BMW Issues Recall For Thousands of Vehicles
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
recalled over 154,000 vehicles due to vehicles stalling due to a potential wiring
issue that can cause an accident. The recall is being issued to U.S. and
Canada owners who have purchased certain models from 2007 to 2012. The
5-series and X5 vehicles along with some 6-series and X6 vehicles are
being recalled. BMW states that wiring located in the fuel pumps, which
are inside the gas tank, may not have been crimped properly. A connector
can be melted if the crimped wire becomes loose which will cause stalling.
The company has not reported any injuries or crashes from this issue and
dealers are replacing the recalled product at no cost to owners.
