BMW SA recalls over 5,000 cars
More than 5,000 BMWs thought to have a faulty bolt were recalled on Friday.
JOHANNESBURG - BMW South Africa on Friday said it was recalling over 5,000 luxury vehicles built between 2006 and 2012 after discovering a technical fault.
The move was part of a worldwide recall involving more than 250,000 X5s and X6s.
These models might have a faulty bolt which could break and cause the loss of power-assisted steering.
It could result in an accident.
But BMW spokesman Guy Kilfoil said no incidents were reported to the company.
He said the majority of cars that were recalled in South Africa are X5s.
"It is 4,748 X5s 35 diesels that were built between June 1, 2006 and November 14, 2012, and 286 X6 35 diesels made between July 25, 2007 and March 18, 2010."
