BMW Recalling Certain Diesel Vehicles

According to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, BMW is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 X5 xDrive 35d SAV diesel vehicles manufactured September 1, 2008, through November 15, 2012. The engine belt idler pulley bolt could loosen and break over time, which may cause the vehicle to unexpectedly lose power-assisted steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW is notifying notify owners, and dealers will replace and tighten the idler pulley bolt. The recall is expected to begin during January 2013.
