New batch of recalls

Recall Round Up: Porsche Panamera, BMW X5 M and Volvo XC90

Posted: Apr. 27, 2010
A new batch of recalls is out, and this time several luxury models are affected.

BMW is recalling 2010 X5 M models for failing to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108. According to NHTSA’s recall notice for the X5 M, “These vehicles were equipped with side marker lamps, but not the power supply cables leading to the lamps. As a result, the side marker lamps do not illuminate.” BMW has not yet provided a remedy and has not begun to notify owners. X5 M owners can contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.

“BMW has not yet said what its fix will be, and this likely does not affect a large number of vehicles,” says Kicking Tires. “Still, it’s startling that BMW built an $85,500 vehicle without attaching power lines to the blinkers.”

Porsche is recalling 2010 Porsche Panamera S, 4S and Turbo sedans due to a defective seat belt mount. According to NHTSA’s recall notice for the Panamera, “If the front seats are adjusted towards an extreme position…it is possible that the function of the locking mechanism of the seat belt mount can no longer be guaranteed.” That means the seat belt mount could detach, and in the event of a crash, “may not provide adequate protection for the seat occupant, which may increase the risk of injury or death.” Dealers will install an additional locking element free of charge. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-545-8039 (PORSCHE recall number AA01).

Volvo is recalling the 2010 XC90 due to a leak in the fuel line. According to NHTSA’s recall notice for the XC90, if a leak develops in the fuel line between the line and a connector, “a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can lead to a fire at the right front wheel.” Dealers will replace affected fuel pressure lines free of charge. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.
