BMW recalls new 5-seriesWed, 28 Jul 2010
BMW is recalling up to 12,400 new 5-series sedans that have defective fuel-tank sensors.
Bloomberg reports that the fuel sensors can become wedged against the tank, causing the fuel gauge to display a higher amount of fuel than what is present.
There have been 10 reported incidents of sedans being affected by the defect in the United States.
The recall involves 6,400 cars in the United States and 5,000 to 6,000 sedans in China.
