BMW recalls 570K of their most popular models
BMW is recalling almost 570, 000 of their most popular cars. 65, 000 of them were sold in Canada.
The issue is with a battery cable connector that can fail & cause the engine to stall.
The recall affects 3-Series sedans, wagons, convertibles & coupes from the 2007-11 model years. Also included are 1-Series coupes & convertibles from 2008-12, & the Z4 sports car from 2009-11.
BMW says it knows of 1 minor collision in Canada because of the connector problem, but no one was hurt.
Dealers will replace the battery cable connector & secure it for free. Owners will start to get notices in March.
