BMW & Rolls-Royce Recall some V8 and V12 Models - Web Exclusive

In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance.

Sep 30, 2010

In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance.

The company claims mechanical braking is still available to slow and stop the vehicle. There have been no report of accidents or injuries. BMW has prepared an inspection and repair procedure for its dealers. The comapny will distribute replacement parts throughout the North American dealer network.

Letters will be sent by First Class mail to owners of affected vehicles in the coming weeks, requesting the scheduling of a service appointment with an Authorized BMW Center to check their vehicle. Drivers who experience reduced power braking assistance should immediately schedule a service appointment with an Authorized BMW Center.
