BMW Lemon Law
The historic carmaker BMW, formally known as Bavarian Motor Works, was founded in 1916 and currently produces over 2 and half million vehicles every year. They manufacture their vehicles across the world, despite being headquartered in Munich, including Mexico, the US, the UK, South Africa, India, China, and Brazil. And while heralded they are no stranger to common BMW problems and recalls.
BMW Fire Risk
One newly common occurrence in BMW’s is a widespread fire risk. Because of the universal nature of this problem, a BMW recall has been issued for both the 3 series and the x5 models sold new during 2006 and 2011.
The issue with these vehicles’ exhaust gas recirculation module has a propensity towards leakage within the engine that could start a fire. This has led to the recall of over 1.6 million vehicles.
If you own one of the vehicles made during the affected years should take caution when driving and check for smoke or the smell of burning plastic, according to BMW. They also suggest parking the vehicle outside until the car has been taken in.
