BMW recalls more than 300000 cars over stalling risk

BMW recalls more than 300000 cars over stalling risk

The recall of cars made between 2007 and 2011 follows a BBC investigation which found that cars could cut out completely as they are being driven due to electrical faults.

A seperate study by Auto Express found that more than a million unsafe cars made by a variety of manufacturers are still on United Kingdom roads, with less than half of the top ten vehicles recalls in the United Kingdom since 2012 being completed.

'In order to reassure customers with concerns about the safety of their vehicles, we are voluntarily extending the recall'.

BMW had initially recalled 36,410 petrol cars in April 2017 over safety issues.

Cars affected by the electric fault, and therefore covered under the recall, include all BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, the Z4 sports auto and X1 SUVs that were manufactured between March 2007 and August 2011. He added the fault was "deemed not critical because the driver is still able to steer the auto and brake the vehicle".

The company says the repairs can be carried out at the customer's local BMW dealer, take no longer than two hours and involve the replacement of an electrical plug, ITV News reports.

So for this series, head coach Dwane Casey made the courageous decision to give the responsibility to a rookie. "We made shots. It's not a coincidence that Cleveland's offense seems to be at its best when the veteran point guard is in the game.

The automaker has received complaints about electrical faults that lead to complete failure of the functioning of the auto, still in 2011.

At that meeting the DVSA's lead engineer Andrew Tudor warned: "We do not want a fatality". He said at the time: "It is not a safety defect because a prior warning is given to the user in the majority of cases".

In the USA BMW recalled 500,000 cars in 2013 to address the problem.

It wasn't until three months after Gurung died, in February 2017, that BMW recalled 36,000 affected vehicles in the United Kingdom, having previously recalled vehicles with the fault in the US, Canada, Australia and South Africa.

However, the lawyer for Gurung's case argued that BMW's response fell short of what was asked of it several years ago. In other words, the risk that had been identified was a risk of death.

The recall comes after Narayan Gurung was killed when he swerved to avoid a BMW that had suffered a total power failure caused by a break in the electrical connection between the battery and fuse box. "Another road user can not see the powerless vehicle".
