BMW recall 2014 : BMW announced recently that they are recalling 156,137 U.S. vehicles due to a problem with the variable camshaft timing, or VANOS, which could reduce engine power and possibly cause further damage, if not repaired.
BMW said “in very rare cases the bolts holding the variable camshaft timing (Vanos) unit housing may become loose or, in extreme cases, break.” In such cases, the driver would be alerted by a check-engine warning light. Power to the engine could be reduced and “if ignored, the problem can become progressively worse, eventually leading to no-start conditions, stalling and engine damage.” Vanos is BMW’s variable-valve timing technology.
The following is a list of the vehicles covered by the recall:
- 2010-2012 BMW 1 Series
- 2010-2012 BMW 3 Series
- 2010-2012 BMW 5 Series
- 2010-2012 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo
- 2012 BMW 6 Series
