Apr. 16, 2012 (China Knowledge) – BMW AG, the world's largest premium car maker by sales volume, will recall 414 imported vehicles in China from Apr. 24, due to faulty electric pump in the vehicles' engine, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine
in a statement published on its website last Friday.
said that the to-be-recalled vehicles include 177 units of BMW-brand models comprising 7 Series, X5 Series and X6 Series, 164 units of Mini Cooper models and 73 units of Rolls-Royce Ghost models, manufactured between early March 2011 and August 2011.
The automaker said that the electric pump in the engine is likely to crack, which will cause the liquid coolant to infiltrate into the pump's circuit board. This could lead the pump to stop working or overheating to burn, thus causing potential safety problems.
The company added that all flawed vehicles will be fixed free.
Last month, the German based luxury automaker recalled 120,246 vehicles in China due to faulty batteries in the vehicles' trunks, China Knowledge reported earlier
