BMW announced today that there will be a recall for certain model vehicles in the United States that may have a bolt issue in the engine that could potentially cause damaged. The BMW Bolt Recall is said to affect over 150,000 vehicles here in the United States.
BMW models included in this recall are 2010-2012 models with six-cylinder engines prone to loosening or breaking. These vehicles could be, but are not limited to, 5 Series and Z4 sports cars. According to Autoblog, “1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, and 5 Series Gran Turismo, X3, X5, X6, and Z4 models from the 2010 to 2012 model years are included, as is the 2012 6 Series.
After seeing other recalls from multiple different automotive makers, it was not shocking to see BMW want to help out its customers as well. The BMW Bolt recall has also affected other countries, like China who had to recall around 232,000 models for the same fix.
