BMW Recalls Over 1 MILLION Vehicles in the U.S.

BMW RECALLS – BMW issued two recalls on over 1 million vehicles in the U.S. over the weekend.

BMW Recall Information

The first recall involved the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve and its heater, and the second recall involved the wires controlling the system of air flow for the heater and air conditioner unit. Both issues caused fires in multiple vehicles over the years, and finally BMW is piecing the information together and taking fault. What were thought to be isolated and unrelated incidents are now discovered to be incidents all due to these PCV valve and heater/air conditioner wiring issues.

Unlike many other vehicle recalls involving issues that caused fire, these fires start when the vehicle is idle for a span of time. However, that span of time can be as long as a few days or as short as a few hours.

The vehicles included in the recall are the 128i from 2008 through 2011; and the 328i, 525i, 528i, 530i, X3. X5 and Z4 from 2007 through 2011.

BMW is expected to begin fixing the issue on December 18th, so owners beware! For over 1 month, your vehicle is at risk of fire.

Kia Soul Recall

Kia is recalling over 300,000 Kia Souls in the U.S. due to steering issues.

Kia Soul Recall Info

The 2014-2016 KIA models had previously been recalled for the same issue and may have been improperly fixed.

The pinion plug may not be secured, and could therefore cause the pinion gear to disconnect from the steering gear. This could cause the driver to lose control of steering, resulting in accident and injury.

The automotive company claims no injuries have been reported in connection to the recall. They plan to notify drivers in November.

Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Trucks in the U.S.

There are major Ford recalls this week, as 1.3 million trucks in the U.S., including 2015-17 Ford F-150 and 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks.

Major Ford Recalls

The issue is with the vehicle doors, where a malfunction with the latch and/or cable is causing the door to be unable to open or close potentially. No accidents or injuries have been reported, however the danger lies in the door appearing closed but actually being open (meaning it could just fling open while driving!), or in the case of an accident the door being unable to be opened by emergency personnel. Also, it’s just a nuisance! Imagine getting locked in your vehicle, or being unable to close your vehicle door.

Ford will notify customers in the next month, but they have not said when the necessary parts will be available at dealers.

This is not Ford’s first issue with car doors either. Since 2016, 5 million Ford vehicles have been recalled for door-related issues. Ford claims this recall is entirely separate from previous ones.

The cost of this particular recall will be $267 million, and Ford projects that between the 2016 recalls and upcoming recalls, they will spend $935 million.
