BMW is expanding a recall to cover 1.6 million vehicles worldwide. The recall is due to a potential fire risk that is caused by possible fluid leaks. According to BMW, in some of its diesel vehicles coolant could leak from the exhausts gas recirculation module, which is part of the emissions reduction system. The leaks could combine with soot at high temperatures and lead to a fire.
The recall covers some vehicles made between 2010 and 2017. The company is planning on notifying customers who own the affected vehicles. Fortunately, no customers were harmed or injured as a result of the recall.
Companies have a duty to keep their customers safe. If they fail in that duty, the injured party can hold the company legally and financially responsible for their damages. That can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
