BMW 5 Series Sedans Recalled

September 20, 2013
BMW of North America LLC
The Danger:
BMW is recalling 5 series sedans because of a taillight problem. The problem involves "increased resistance" at electrical contact points in the taillight housings that can cause the taillights to go out. If the resistance becomes a problem, drivers could lose the ability to switch on tailights, brake lights, turn signals or backing lights. There have been no reported cases of injuries, fatalities or crashes associated with the taillight issue.
The recall includes 134,100 2008-2010 5 series sedans produced between March 1, 2007 and December 31, 2009.
Sold At:
Car dealerships nationwide.
What To Do:
Report to dealers so that the bulb carriers on the taillights can be replaced. For more information, call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236.
