The world’s largest luxury car manufacturer, BMW, is recalling around 1.3 million cars due to a possible problem with a battery cable cover in the car boot. This recall is for the 5 and 6 series cars which were manufactured during 2003 and 2010.
“In some remote cases, the battery cable cover inside the boot of these vehicles may be incorrectly mounted.”
“This can result in the electrical system malfunctioning, the vehicle failing to start and, in some cases, to charring or fire” BMW said.
The company also clarified that it had not heard of any accidents related to this and hence this is more of a proactive safety measure.
The company would be contacting all the affected car owners and the rectification would take 30 minutes and would be free of cost to the customers.
There has been no mention of any car in India.
