BMW has announced the recall of more than 30,000 SUVs to fix an oil leak than can render power-assisted braking unusable.
According to the German automaker, the recall involves X5 SUVs sold in the U.S. from the 2007 through 2010 model years. The cars were built between September 12, 2006, and March 18, 2010 and are all 8-cylinder models. BMW says a small amount of oil can leak from a brake hose and cause the power-assisted braking to fail. Brakes would still work, but not as effectively and the problem could lead to increased stopping distances and potential crashes.
