- Call your dealer.
What is the BMW recall fault?
A recall in October last year identified 268,000 diesel BMWs in the UK requiring potential remedial work, with 1.6 million vehicles affected worldwide. The fault concerns a possible glycol leak in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve coolers, which could lead to fire “in extreme cases”.

What causes BMW to catch fire?
BMW says in documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that moisture can get into the cars’ positive crankcase ventilation valve heater and cause plastic parts to degrade. That can lead to an electrical short and a possible fire even when the engine isn’t on.
Are Recalls free?
A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. If there is a safety recall, your manufacturer will fix the problem free of charge.
Do recalls expire?
While car recalls don’t have an expiration date, they are only enforced for “reasonable periods,” the agency says. Basically, a recall is over if a vehicle’s manufacturer goes out of business, or if the parts needed to make the necessary repair are no longer being made.
What recalls were done on my car?
Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle still needs to be repaired. NHTSA’s new search tool lets you enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years.
Do recalls have a time limit?
There is no time limit on getting a recall fixed, and most dealers should honor the recall and fix your car free of charge. The only exception is if your vehicle is older than ten years at the time of the recall, the dealer may not fix the vehicle for free.
Can I get compensation for a car recall?
Can I receive compensation if my car is recalled? Manufacturers are obliged to perform necessary recall work free-of-charge, but are under no obligation to provide compensation for your inconvenience. Recall compensation is likely to be decided by the manufacturer on a case-by-case basis, but is generally rare.
How long do you have to get a recall fixed?
The statute of limitations for all no-charge recalls is 8 years from the original sale date of the vehicle. After that time, you may be required to pay if you wish to have the part or parts replaced or corrected.
