BMWs Recalled for Light Defects
There have been 241,000 3-Series BMWs recalled in the United States for a rear-light defect that may cause road accidents. The recall is affecting models 2002-2005 of the 325i, 325xi, 330i and 330xi cars. It was reported by NHTSA that the tail, turn and brake lights are not working consistently. This auto defect creates a high risk of accidents due to the inability to communicate with other drivers.
BMW recalled another 120,000 diesel cars worldwide due to a defect that could potentially cause filter heaters to continue running after the engine is off.
The light defect only affects BMWs in the U.S. and 20,000 have already been fixed. The battery problem affects about 2,000 X5 SUVs that were made between September 200 and April 2009.
