2008-2012 BMW 3 Series: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 16,600 model-year 2009 BMW 328i and 328xi sedans; model-year 2009-11 335d sedans; model-year 2008-12 M3 coupes and convertibles; and model-year 2008-11 M3 sedans

The Problem: The connection of the positive battery cable at the fuse box terminal may degrade, resulting in an intermittent loss of electrical power that can cause the car to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace and secure the positive battery cable connector for free.

What Owners Should Do: BMW will begin notifying owners Aug. 12. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
