BMW is recalling about 2,800 cars because a circuit board can overheat and cause a fire.

The recall covers some 2011 and 2012 models of the 5-Series, 5-Series Gran Turismo, 6-Series convertible, 7-Series, X5 SAV and X6 SAV. The company says in documents filed with the government that there have been no injuries.

The circuit board is for the electric auxiliary water pump. BMW says it will notify owners of the cars and dealers will replace the pump for free. Owners can call BMW at 800-525-7417 for details.

Late last month, BMW issued another recall, but at a much larger scale: 1.3 million cars worldwide.

    Oh, Jesus. Another shameful recall because of a childish problem. BMW engineers should go for seminars and learn from Mercedes-Benz and Audi engineers how to build a high quality car instead of the lowest quality cars in the world, even worse than Kia.

    Instead, BMW should be praised for their efforts and that they actually do this instead of holdding thumbs that such a freak occurrence wouldn’t happen. This is a precaution, not a threat. The above remark is very unfair and childish.

    Each and every company recalls.There is nothing shameful in recalling cars.If they ignored it then it will be a matter of shame.Ofcourse they are known for their cutting edge technology and they know what quality means to BMW.
