Faulty BMW Car Battery Cable Recall
Leading car company BMW AG has recently recalled close to 368,000 cars in the United States and another 504,000 in Europe and China for problems with the battery cable cover in the trunk of the vehicle. The recall affects close to 1.3 million 5 and 6-series BMWs manufactured between the years of 2003 and 2010. Due to an improperly mounted battery cable cover, motorists may face a number of electrical problems that could potentially have an impact on their safety.

Less than one percent of tested vehicles have displayed problems, but the consequences of this particular defect are particularly hazardous and should not be overlooked, despite the apparently low risk. The company decided to recall the vehicles after learning that the battery cable cover was improperly mounted. If your cover was wrongly mounted, the following problems may arise:
- Inability to start
- Electrical system malfunction or failure
- Electrical fire
If you own a BMW included in this recall, you are encouraged to take your vehicle to be repaired as soon as possible in order to avoid future complications.
