BMW Recalls 1.4 Million Vehicles Due To Fire Risk”

This increases the chances of a fire, even when the vehicle isn't in use.

The recall is expected to begin December 18, 2017.

The recall includes some 128i vehicles, 3-series, 5-series and X3, X5 and Z4 vehicles. No injuries were reported in these cases. But irregularities in manufacturing can cause corrosion can lead to overheating. The automaker needs to address a wiring issue with the heating and air conditioning system that could create a fire risk.

One recall covers 670,000 2006-2011 United States 3-series vehicles to address a wiring issue for heating and air conditioning system may overheat and could increase the risk of a fire. Also covered are the 2007-2011 328i xDrive, 335i xDrive and 335is, and the 2009-2011 335d. BMW says a wiring connection can corrode and in rare cases cause fires.

The company has filed two recalls with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In order to remedy the issue, dealers will inspect the wiring harness and replace any components that need replacing, and they will also install a new part to prevent the issue from happening again.
