Voluntary recall affects 367,000 BMW’s in U.S.
Last week, BMW announced a voluntary recall of 367,000 models that they sold in the United States. These cars were part of the international recall that reached 1.3 million vehicles worldwide.
The recall came after a thorough investigation of claims regarding the safety of a battery cable connector. These batteries can be found in the trunk of the 5 Series and 6 Series models, and can create hazards for the owners. Complaints regarding the wiring of the battery led BMW to recall the vehicles in order to repair the problems.
A mechanical issue with the wiring of these models can lead to overheating, and, on rare occasions, fires. BMW has begun notifying the owners of these defective automobiles. Dealers associated with BMW will be able to fix the glitches free of charge in the United States. No injuries have currently been reported in regards to the recall.
