Ben 61.714 auto recalled and all of the brand Bmw. The German carmaker is targeting the X3, X4 and X5 series built between August 18, 2016 and February 28, 2022. The reason? A defect in the control software that can lead to motor blocking or a drop in torque. While no one has reported any incidents at the moment, buyer calls began on May 24th. 12,721 reports would come from Germany. For this reason, the manufacturer notifies the customers and asks them to take the car directly to the BMW workshop for the re-installation of the software.
As mentioned by The mirror, for the manufacturer it is not the first recall. Already in April the company had had to recall some cars manufactured between 11 January and 3 March of this year, thus a total of 27,165 cars. In that case the defect was related to the micro-gas generator used in the seat belt pretensioner, which could create an increased risk of injury or fire in the event of an accident.
BMW is in good company. Like the German manufacturer, Mercedes Benz also reported problems with reversing and hazard light software on three models built from 2020 to this year, 62,810 cars worldwide to check. And for defects in welds recalled 85 vehicles of the S-Class built in 2021/22. Not only that, because on 24,450 Audi A3 and Q3 built from 2020 and 42,571 Volkswagen Arteon, Golf, Passat, Tiguan and T7 manufactured from 2019, several checks had been necessary. All due to insufficient insulation of the high voltage battery breaker box.
