BMW 5-SeriesBMW is recalling 368,000 5 Series and 6 Series vehicles from the 2003-10 model years because of a potential problem with the car battery, according to Reuters.

In some of the vehicles, the electrical system may malfunction because the battery cable cover was incorrectly mounted, BMW told Reuters. As a result, the vehicle may not start or a fire may be ignited, BMW said. Less than 1% of the vehicles tested exhibited the issue, BMW says.
