BMW AG Quality Measure. Previous generation BMW 5 and 6 Series models built between 2003 and 2010.

  • 26.03.2012
Contained media data:

In order to carry out a quality measure, the BMW AG is re-calling all BMW 5 and 6 Series models of the previous generation, built between 2003 and 2010 and still on the market for repair at authorised dealers.


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.


We are not aware of any accidents or injury to persons resulting from this fault.


Vehicle owners will be notified in writing. Affected vehicles will remain at the respective BMW Partner repair workshop for approximately 30 minutes, the service, of course, being free of charge to the customer.


Approximately 1.3 million vehicles worldwide are affected.
