BMW recalling 2010 X5 M over defective side marker lamps

After yesterday’s Porsche Panamera recall, another high end model will soon be called back to dealerships: the BMW X5 M performance SUV/SAV.

The problem with the 2010 BMW X5 M stems from the side marker lamps, which are located in the outer corner of the headlight cluster. It seems that even though they were installed, power cables leading to them and ensuring their functionality weren’t (d’oh!).

As such, around 735 2010 BMW X5 M models will soon be recalled to dealerships so that a fix can be implemented. Up until now, BMW hasn’t found a remedy, but as soon as a solution appears, owners of the performance SUV will receive a letter of notification in order to come to the dealership for the free fix.

The problem isn’t life threatening, as the headlights or the turn signals still work accordingly. The recall is done for compliance with federal law. BMW X5 M owners can contact BMW at 800-525-7417.
