BMW Recalling 2011 X5 And X6


A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association says that BMW is recalling an unknown number of X5 and X6 SUVs over incorrect tire pressure labels.

According to Inside Line, NHTSA claims not only are the pressures wrong, but the wheel sizing is off as well. "The vehicles are equipped with 20-inch wheels, but the label states that the vehicles were equipped with 19-inch wheels and the stated tire pressure is incorrect for the equipped vehicles. Improper tire inflation can result in premature tire failure or reduced vehicle handling performance, either of which can increase the risk of a crash."

On the other hand, BMW submitted documentation to the federal government stating that the defect will not affect the safety of its vehicles. Owners can contact BMW at (800) 525-7417.

So basically, BMW is saying, "This defect can increase the risk of a crash, but will not affect the safety of the vehicles."

It's just a label, though. Like I ever pay any attention to those anyway...
