German Manufacturers BMW and Volkswagen Join the Car Recall Parade

Comments Off

Japanese (Toyota) and U.S. (Ford, GM, and Chrysler) manufacturers are not the only car makers to have recall issues recently. Joining the club are BMW and Volkswagen (VW), albeit to a lesser extent because the volume of vehicles is far less than the aforementioned manufacturers, although the issues still involve safety concerns: fires.

BMW 1 Series vehicles made from 2008 to 2011 have been recalled because of a potential fire hazard. The front-seat safety-belt retractors can ignite. This is a potential safety defect.

Additionally, VW has recalled 15,902 of its Routan minivans due to a potential fire hazard that could be caused by short-circuiting rear-door latches. Again, a potential safety defect.

If you have one of these vehicles, see your local dealer to get the necessary repairs completed.
