Jarod Cassidy12 months ago
BMW of North America has issued a recall for nearly 50,000 BMW, Mini, and Rolls-Royce cars and SUVs after determining a manufacturer defect could lead to vehicle fires.
Details of the BMW, Mini, and Rolls-Royce Recalls
According to Consumer Reports, the recall affects 47,806 vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model-years.
Recall records indicate the auxiliary water pump in the recalled vehicles can fail and cause a circuit board to overheat. This overheating could in turn lead to a fire.
The automaker is recommending that owners of the recalled vehicles park the cars and SUVs outside until proper repairs can be made.
Affected owners can expect to be notified beginning June 11, 2018. A second notification will be sent when repair parts become available. Owners can also contact BMW, Mini, or Rolls-Royce directly.
