2009 X5/6 Recall

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/07/15/b...5-and-x6-mode/

Not much has been announced in the way of affected VINs or MFG date, or in the fix, but looks like it might be all 2009 X5/6s.

Below is a copy of the notice:

Vehicle Make / Model: BMW / X5, BMW / X6
Model Year(s): 2009

Manufacturer: BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC
Mfr's Report Date: JUN 25, 2009
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V255000
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTSISC

Summary:
BMW IS RECALLING MY 2009 X5 AND X6 VEHICLES. THE REAR BRAKE DISCS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS. AS A RESULT, A REDUCTION IN BRAKING PERFORMANCE AT THE AFFECTED REAR WHEEL COULD OCCUR.

Consequence:
IN AN EXTREME CASE, THE AFFECTED REAR BRAKE DISC COULD BREAK RESULTING IN A LOSS OF BRAKING AT THAT WHEEL INCREASING STOPPING DISTANCES AND THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy:
THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED THE AGENCY WITH A REMEDY OR NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117.

Notes:
OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Just got off the phone with BMW Customer Service, the info that the rep gave me was that this affects vehicles produced between mid-May and June 1st. This may or may not be accurate, but wanted to pass it along.

Let us know when you find a bulletin from BMW. The blog is vague.

My X5 is in for a hitch today. No recall on my vin. But then again mine was built last week so I would hope they would have fixed the issue by then.

Looks like BMW was on top of this one
