BMW Issues Massive Recall for Stalling Issues

By Car Accident Help on February 25, 2013

BMW has issued an auto defect recall because of electrical issues that can cause the vehicles to unexpectedly stall. According to a Reuters news report, approximately 750,000 vehicles that were built between March 2007 and July 2011 are included in the recall. Officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) say a battery cable connection with a fuse box on the vehicles can degrade, causing the engine to stall. This can increase the risk of a crash because it can happen while the vehicle is moving.

Included in this recall are 3-Series sedans, coupes, convertibles, and sports wagons. Other vehicles that are being recalled include 1-Series coupes and convertibles, Z4 two-seat roadsters, and some X1 crossover vehicles. There have been no reported crashes or injuries in the United States as a result of these defective vehicles.

When a vehicle stalls, the engine stops turning. This can happen when the engine is not getting enough air, fuel, or electrical spark. As a result, the stalled vehicle may lose power brakes and power steering, making it difficult to control. In other cases, the vehicle may become completely uncontrollable. Having your vehicle suddenly stall, especially when driving, can be extremely dangerous.

If you have been injured in an Oklahoma car accident that resulted from a mechanical malfunction or a vehicle defect, it is important that you preserve the vehicle for a complete and thorough inspection. It might be possible that you have a defective part. In such cases, financial support may be available from the auto manufacturer through a product liability claim. If a defective vehicle has injured you or a loved one, please contact an experienced Oklahoma City defective car injury lawyer with the Maples Law Firm at (888) 226-6159 for a free and comprehensive consultation.
