BMW Recalling 134,000 5-Series Cars in the United States
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Sep 20, 2013 in Defective Products
Early Friday morning on September 20th, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration announced that BMW would be recalling 528i, 535i, 550i and M5 cars from the 2008 through 2010 model years.
According to the German car manufacturer the rear lights may fail causing the loss of tail, brake turn-signal or backup lights. Increased electrical resistance can damage the connection of the lights leading to the problem.
No accidents or injuries have been reported but BMW decided to issue the recall due to a practice set forth by a 2011 recall for a similar problem. In August 2011 BMW recalled 241,000 of its 3-series cars for the same issue.
Owners will be contacted if their vehicle is affected however, consumers may also contact BMW (800) 525-7417 for more information.
