BMW is certainly one of the German marques that have made quite the impression on folks worldwide, having tied up with James Bond during the Pierce Brosnan era, and also delivering sleek, desirable machines for yuppies worldwide. However, this does not mean that BMW is free from its fair share of mistakes – case in point, BMW AG recalling 1.3 million vehicles from 2003 to 2010 model years under the banner of 5 Series and 6 Series cars. According to BMW, there is a remote possibility of a battery cable covering in the trunk being installed incorrectly, and as a result of that, it might prevent the car from starting. As for the worst case scenario, your precious BMW might even end up in a ball of flames. Good thing unlike exploding iPhones, BMW says that there are no known accidents or injuries from the defect. This recall exercise will take around 30 minutes to repair once you have received the letter from BMW themselves. Are you one of the affected?
