BMW In Recall Problems

BMW is recalling almost 570,000 cars in the U.S. and Canada. The reason these vehicles are being recalled is because a battery cable connector can fail. When these connectors fail it will cause the engines to stall. When engines suddenly stall, passengers in vehicles can be exposed to many accidents.

The recall involves many different models on the product line. 3- Series sedans, wagons, convertibles and coupes from 2007 to 2011 years. The 1- series coupes and convertibles from 2008 to 2012 are also being recalled along with the Z-4.

These cable connectors have a fuse box terminal and can end up degrading over time. The lack of the functionality of these cable connectors can break the electrical connection. When this happens, the vehicle is at risk of losing electrical power. Obviously, this can stop the engine from running.

The cable connectors and a fuse box terminal in the cars can degrade over time, and that can break the electrical connection between the trunk-mounted battery and the fuse box at the front. If that happens, the cars could lose electrical power, causing the engines to stall unexpectedly,

BMW has been informed of one minor collision that has occurred in Canada due to this specific problem. Luckily, there were no injuries in the accident.  BMW plans to start informing the owners next month and will fix any faulty connections free of charge.

The company sold nearly 100,000 of the BMW 3 series in the U.S. last year. The problem is that the recall can affect for than half a million vehicles in the United States and Canada. This has definitely been a year of large recalls, so far. BMW, General Motors and Toyota have all been part of these recalls.
