BMW Issues 5 Series, 6 Series Recall for Philippines
Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the official importer and distributor of BMW cars in the country, will rollout a Quality Measure Campaign for owners of the previous generation BMW 5 Series (E60/E61) and BMW 6 Series (E63/E64).
The campaign will focus on a possible incorrect mounting of the battery cable cover inside the boot. This may lead to a malfunction of the electrical system and lead to the vehicle failing to start. However, there have not been any reported accidents or injuries to persons resulting from this fault.
In the Philippines, there are approximately 700 vehicles that were identified individually pertaining to this quality measure campaign. The cars involved were manufactured between 2003 and 2010. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail and will be asked to bring their vehicle to a BMW dealer for a 30minute repair at no charge.
“ACC is being proactive in addressing this campaign to reach out to our customers and communicate to them that their safety is our top of mind. Immediate information is key to make sure that they get their cars to the dealerships for this campaign as soon as possible,” said Glen Dasig, Executive Director for Sales and Marketing. For more information about this Quality Measure Campaign, please do not hesitate to contact your authorized BMW Dealer or email email@example.com
