BMW to recall 3,422 cars in India
New Delhi: As part of its global decision, German luxury auto maker BMW will start recalling 3,422 units of 5 and 6-Series cars in India within a month to replace a faulty battery cable cover.

"We will get the replacement parts for these 3,422 cars within a month and will accordingly inform our customers," a BMW India spokesperson said.

The company will replace the battery cable cover in 5 and 6-Series cars, which were produced between 2007 and 2010, he added.

"These all cars are old versions of the two models. Out of these, the 5-Series were assembled at our Chennai plant in India, while the 6-Series cars were imported," the official said.

The spokesperson, however, said the company has not received any complaint about any defect related to the cable cover and is changing the parts under the global exercise.

"The parts will be replaced free of cost and it will not take more than 30 minutes for a customer," he added. Earlier this week, BMW has announced to recall a total of 13 lakh 5 and 6-series cars across the globe to replace the faulty battery cable cover.

According to the company, the battery cable cover inside the boot of these vehicles may be incorrectly mounted in some cases. Because of this problem, there may be electrical system malfunctioning and the vehicle may fail to start.

In some remote cases, the car may even catch fire, although the company said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries to people due to this problem.

It is reported that the recall affects about 3.68 lakh units in the US, about 2.93 lakh units in Germany, 1.09 units in Britain and about 1.02 lakh units China.
