2012 BMW X5

There’s a new report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stating that there are six specific examples of the 2012 BMW X5 being recalled for a supposed faulty parking gear. As a result, these six X5s could roll away if the parking brake is not applied.

BMW recognized this fault and is working with the NHTSA to remedy these six particular examples. They said that a free fix to replace the automatic transmission is available for affected owners and those who own an X5 and are concerned can call BMW directly at 1-800-525-7417.

The X5s in question were built between December 19, 2011 and December 21, 2011. No deaths or injuries have been reported and linked to the recall.
