BMW Issues Recall on Certain Diesel-Powered X5 SUVs

Diesel X5 SUVs have a potential steering problem

BMW has announced a recall on certain 2009 through 2012 BMW X5 diesel SUVs. The recall is due to a possible defect in the steering of the vehicle. The problem is a bolt that holds the idler pulley inside the engine compartment can loosen and break.

If that bolt breaks, the vehicle could lose power steering during operation. When power steering is lost, drivers can still control the vehicle, but the effort required to steer is greatly increased. The NHTSA believes that the number of affected vehicles in the US is around 29,800.

An additional 5500 vehicles in Canada are also affected by the recall. Vehicles covered in recall were constructed between September 1, 2008 and November 15, 2012. The recall only covers diesel-powered versions of the X5.

This B.C. man brings million-dollar classic cars back to life

Nov 4 2014 3:02pm CST | Source: Driving Canada

Hidden away in a rural part of Vancouver Island, one of the world’s best automotive restorers brings million-dollar beauties back to life. VICTORIA, B.C. — “…and cheap too, at $1.3-million.” The relative insanity of this half-overheard statement doesn’t actually penetrate my brain. I am stunned, floored, gob-smacked by what I am seeing.
