 BMW fire risk leads to recall of 1.6 million diesel vehicles worldwide54,700 Diesel BMWs in U.S., Canada Recalled

German-auto manufacturer BMW is recalling some 1.6 million vehicles worldwide due to a potential fire risk due to possible fluid leaks.

Roughly 54,700 of those vehicles were sold to consumers in the United States and Canada.

Specifically, BMW stated that some diesel vehicles may leak coolant from the exhaust gas recirculation module which is part of the emissions reduction system. Should the leaky gas mix with soot and high temperatures, there is a potential for a fire.

Fires were initially reported in South Korea, leading the Munich-based company to first recall 480,000 vehicles in Asia and Europe. Although there were no injuries reported the company decided to further examine these incidents and expand its maintenance actions.

The vehicles subject to the recall were built between 2010 and 2017, however, BMW intends to contact those who have affected vehicles.
