2012 BMW X5 diesel recalled over belt tensioner issue

Filed under: Government/Legal, Safety, Crossover, BMW, Diesel



BMW has initiated a recall of certain diesel X5 models due to a faulty belt tensioner. The German automaker says that a manufacturing error at the supplier could mean that the tensioners have incipient cracks in their welds.

The recall covers a total of 923 2012 XDrive35D models, and BMW dealers will replace the part free of charge.
