BMW is Recalling 1 Million Cars in North America

Two separate issues have made luxury auto maker BMW recall around 1 million vehicles in North America.

The move came after it was round out that a wiring issue in the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning systems increases the risk of fire. The other issue is that some vehicles have a valve that may rust and could also risk a fire.

The German automaker announced the news on Friday that it would be recalling the vehicles over the two issues.

One recall covers 670,000 U.S. vehicles that range from the year 2006 to 2011. They are 3-series vehicles that have the heating and air conditioning issue that may increase the risk of fire.

The other issue is for 740,000 vehicles in the U.S. that have the valve issue. These vehicles include 128i vehicles, 3-series, 5-series and X3, X5 and Z4 vehicles.

According t BMW spokesman Michael Rebstock, nearly all of the recalls are in the U.S. but around 15,000 are in Canada.
