BMW will inform to 324 thousand car owners in Europe about the recall of their carsAugust 9, 2018
The reason for the recall was the possible malfunction of the exhaust gas recirculation module, which could lead to a fire, the company said in a press release.
The manufacturer recalls the cars on a voluntary basis. Under the recall campaign were cars of 3-7 series, as well as SUVs X3, X4, X5 with four-cylinder diesel engines that left the conveyor of the plant from April to September 2015, as well as six-cylinder,
issued from July 2012 to June 2015.
Of the 324,000 cars in Europe, nearly 100,000 cars were bought by German citizens. 13 owners of foreign cars BMW signed a class action and demanded to pay them $ 4,500 each.
Car owners of defective cars will be asked to deliver their vehicles to the nearest service center of the brand, in order to replace the faulty module with a new one. The defect will be liquidated for free.
Recall that in early August, the South Korean government initiated an investigation into the concern BMW because of the cases of engine ignition in the models of the third and fifth series. In the seven months of this year, 28 messages were received from drivers owning BMW cars, which left production from March 2011 to November 2016.
The service campaign in South Korea will start on August 20, when the required number of spare parts will be delivered to the country. In addition, the AGR system can be replaced.
In addition, the BMW brand in July this year, for various reasons, withdrew from Russia a total of 328 cars. Under the voluntary review were BMW X3 / X4, Mini F5 / F60 and F2, F3, F4, G11, G12, G3x, sold in May-July 2018. The reason is a suspicion of a possible defect in the crankshaft position sensor. With these faults, the signals of this sensor are not read.
Also the recall campaign will concern also 113 X3 / X4 cars, bought from official dealers in April-July of the current year. In this case, the reason is the risk of air entering the braking system, which can increase the stroke of the pedal during braking. In addition, there is a possibility that the rear brake circuit will fail.
