BMW recalls X5, X6 vehicles in China

Updated 2017-06-13 20:18:34 Xinhua

BMW will recall more than 86,000 imported X5 and X6 vehicles in China starting from Nov. 1, 2017, due to a problem in the drive shaft.

The recall involves 57,371 X5 vehicles and 29,407 X6 vehicles manufactured between April 2010 and April 2013, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

The seal in the front drive shaft bearing could move away from its designed position and cause undesirable wear of the bearing due to sand and water that could get in.

In extreme cases, the cross shaft joint may rupture, causing the front wheels to lose driving force.

The company will replace the defective drive shafts free of charge.
