BMW to recall 120,000 diesel 1 and 5 Series over particulate filter defect
This condition, according to a report from Bloomberg, could cause smoke to spew from the filter and could even ultimately result in vehicle fire. Bloomberg says a defective electrical connection can cause the filter heater to continue to function when the vehicle is not in use.
BMW says that all owners of diesel 1 and 5 series will be immediately notified of this recall and that work to correct the issue in a timely manner is already underway. BMW says it noticed the defect while conducting tests and claims no complaints or fires have been reported.
