BMW Fire Hazard Recall | BMW Dealership St Louis MO

BMW has issued two recalls involving about one million cars and sport utility vehicles, including the 3 Series and X5, that are at risk of catching fire even when they are not in use. The first recall covers more than 672,000 cars. It includes several BMW 3 Series models from 2006-11 with wiring and electrical conductors in the climate control system that are vulnerable to overheating. The second, larger recall involves the 2008-11 128i and various other 2007-11 models with six-cylinder engine. In these vehicles, the heater designed to keep the positive crankcase ventilation from freezing has the potential to short-circuit, causing the parts inside its valve to melt. The crankcase ventilation system helps gases escape from an internal combustion engine. BMW dealers will replace the recalled components without charge. Plaza BMW is dedicated to helping those who have a vehicle affected by this recall.

1
Grab Your VIN
VIN # is a acronym for Vehicle Identification Number. Every car is assigned a VIN # and your local dealership can look up this number to see history of the vehicle, recalls on the vehicle, and specific details about the vehicle.

The easiest way to view it is to stand outside the vehicle on the driver's side and look at the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield. If the VIN cannot be found there, open the driver's side door and look at the door post (where the door latches when it is closed).

How do I know whether my car is affected by the recall?


There are several ways to check whether your specific car is affected. You'll need your vehicle identification number, VIN, found in the lower driver-side corner of the windshield (observable from outside the vehicle), as well as on your registration and insurance documents. Punch that number into NHTSA's online VIN-lookup tool. If your vehicle is affected, the site will tell you so. NHTSA also has a list of vehicles available for a quick review, and the manufacturers have ownership sections on their websites for such information. Or you can call any franchised dealer for your car brand.

How important is that I respond to the recall?


All recalls, by definition, are concerned with safety and should be treated seriously. As with all recalls, we recommend having the work performed as soon as parts are available and the service can be scheduled. 

I'm worried about driving, what should I do until the fix is made?


If you use the VIN-lookup tool and it says that the problem involves the driver's side, you should do what you can to minimize your risk. If possible, consider:
  • Minimizing your driving.
  • Carpooling with someone whose vehicle is not affected by the recall.
  • Utilizing public transportation.
  • Renting a car.
Renting a car until yours is repaired can prove expensive and ultimately might not be the ideal solution. Asking your dealer whether they will provide one, or a loaner vehicle might be worth a try if it accomplishes nothing else than putting some pressure on the manufacturer. If you do get a rental car, as with any new vehicle or rental, take some time to familiarize yourself with its operation before driving.

Should I expect to pay any money to get the recall fix?


Repairs conducted under the recall are free, but unrelated problems discovered during the service may not be.
