BMW China to recall vehicles
The recall covers vehicles equipped with N52K, N52T and N55 engines, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said.
A total of 138,534 vehicles imported by BMW China from June 10 in 2009 to July 30 in 2012 were affected, involving BMW 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 series and X1, X3, X5, X6 and Z4.
And 93,564 vehicles of BMW 3 and 5 series produced by BMW Brilliance from Nov. 7 in 2009 to June 6 in 2013 will be recalled.
The recall is due to defects in the bolts at the shell of VANOS, a valve timing system, which may loosen or crack.
The companies will replace faulty bolts free of charge. ■
