BMW to Recall 350,000 Luxury Cars Hot News Review with Pictures and Videos

Sunday, March 20, 2011

BMW has announced it will recall about 350,000 luxury cars worldwide because of a problem with brakes.
The German firm said the recall was due to a fault with the power-braking system but the cars were not unsafe.

The recall affects V8 and V12-powered BMW 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, and Rolls-Royce models produced between July 2001 and November 2009.

Of the total, 11,427 cars - including 905 Rolls-Royces - are in the UK, and 198,000 in the U.S.

Globally, 348,000 BMWs are affected, plus a further 5,800 Rolls-Royces.

""In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance,"" said the company in a statement.

However, mechanical braking is still available to slow and stop the vehicle, and there have been no reported accidents or injuries.
