Recall Alert: 2007-10 BMW X5

Lead
BMW is recalling 30,265 model-year 2007-10 versions of the X5 midsize SUV due to a problem with the brakes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles are equipped with V-8 engines and were manufactured from Sept. 12, 2006, through March 18, 2010 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). The brake vacuum pump in these vehicles may leak, which could interfere with the power assisted braking system. This could lead to a crash. According to BMW, there have not been any accidents related to this issue.

BMW will notify owners later this month, and dealers will replace the brake vacuum line for free. Owners can call BMW at 800-525-7417 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

What is wrong with BMW.This is the second car to be recalled by BMW within a time frame of less than 2 years. I really liked the X5 from BMW. Great car in terms of power,ride comfort, control and fuel economy as well.I sincerely hope that the BMW manufacturers will be more cautious in the future and try to avoid similar incidents for a third time.
