BMW recalls cars in North America

Engine concerns have led to BMW recalling almost 570,000 cars in the US and Canada.

Due to begin next month, the recall was sparked by fears that a battery cable could fail and cause engines to stall.

Federal safety regulators pointed out how the condition of the connector and a fuse box terminal can degrade over time. Such deterioration can break the electrical cable, causing the cars to lose electrical power and stall.

One minor collision has occurred in Canada due to the problem, but there were no injuries, BMW said.

Models included in the recall are 3-Series sedans, wagons, convertibles and coupes released between 2007 and 2011, as well as 1-Series coupes and convertibles from 2008 to 2012, and the Z4 sports car from 2009 to 2011.

Even if the owner does not have any Vehicle Warranty, the German auto-maker will replace the battery cable and secure it free of charge.

Although the recall only applies to North America, UK motorists should still be aware of manufacturer faults which could cause a mechanical breakdown.
