Now under fire automaker BMW is recalling 324,000 diesel cars in Europe to fix a mechanical issue that has caused engine fires right here in South Korea.
According to a German newspaper on Wednesday, a faulty exhaust gas recirculation module in some of BMWs diesel models which caused 27 engine fires in South Korea this yearprompted the huge recall including nearly 100,000 units in Germany alone.
This comes as a South Korean government is looking into banning BMW cars from the road toprevent any more fires like the one you’re looking at there.
Meanwhile, a group of local BMW owners will file a police complaint this week seeking a criminal investigation into top officials at the local unit of the German carmaker.
Badin law firm says it plans to lodge a complaint on behalf of 20 BMW owners and one victim of a BMW vehicle fire.
