BMW recalls 7,20,000 cars worldwide due to electrical issue

BMW has recalled 7,20,000 cars worldwide due to an electrical issue. The recall includes BMW’s popular models like the 3-Series, 1-Series and the Z4 and affects vehicles sold in US, Canada, Japan and South Africa.

The American road safety body NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) issued a report confirming that recall is due to faulty battery cable connection with the fuse box that might deteriorate overtime stalling the vehicle and hence increasing the chances of a crash. In fact BMW has confirmed that the issue has caused one minor accident in US, but no one was injured.

The recall affects over 5,05,000 cars in US, 65,000 in Canada, 1,00,000 and around 50,000 units in South Africa. The recall does not affect vehicles sold in Germany or the rest of Europe and though we don’t have an official word from BMW India as yet, we don’t think that the vehicles sold in India will be part of this recall.
