It’s rare to see a BMW recall, but the Bavarian automaker has done just that…and not just on any car. They’re recalling their bread-and-butter, the best-selling 3 series. In addition, they are also recalling the 1 series, as well as the Z4 roadster.
The issue at hand concerns the battery cable…apparently, there is a fault between the battery cable and the fuse box. This fault could increase the risk of the vehicle stalling, making it more susceptible to crashing into another vehicle, or vice versa.
The vehicles being recalled in the United States and Canada are:
2007 – 2011 BMW 3 Series sedan, coupe, convertible, and wagon
2008 – 2012 BMW 1 Series coupe and convertible
2009 – 2011 BMW Z4 Roadster
In all, 570,000 vehicles will be sent back to the dealership for repairs. That number breaks down to 504,000 in the United States, as well as 65,000 in Canada. Of course, the repairs will be performed at no cost to the owner, and if you think that you’re vehicle might be a part of the BMW recall, you can contact your local dealer.
