BMW has announced a recall of 1.3 million cars worldwide, covering all 5 Series and 6 Series models built from 2003 to 2010.
The company revealed that the problem was concerning a battery cable cover in the boot that may have been mounted incorrectly. According to BMW, the result of the problem will be electrical malfunctions, vehicles not starting and in the most serious cases 'charring or fire'. Owners shouldn't be too concerned though, as only nine cases have so far been reported.
Owners of the affected cars will be contacted by letter to arrange for them to visit a repair centre to correct the problem. According to BMW, the process should take around 30 minutes.
Earlier this year BMW-owned MINI was forced to recall 235,000 models worldwide because of a faulty electric water pump.For more details click here.
