Due to a fire risk, BMW has issued recalls of five BMW models manufactured between 2008-2011. Turbocharged eight- and 12-cylinder engines in the 5 Series , 5 Series Gran Turismo , 7 Series , X5 and X6 could suffer from overheated circuit boards, which control the auxiliary electric water pump. If overheated, the board could cause the pump to smolder.
BMW will send recall notices for 32,000 vehicles and dealers will replace the pump free of charge.
