BMW China Automotive Trading Ltd. will recall 939 imported diesel-powered X5 vehicles manufactured between July 19, 2013 and June 5, 2015, starting from Oct. 29, according to a statement from the State Administration for Market Regulation.
Defective coolers on these cars' EGR systems may cause ablation or fire, the statement said.
The company will also recall 6,912 imported MINI Cooper vehicles produced between Jan. 6, 2017 and June 21, 2018, starting from Oct. 15.
These vehicles are missing protection plates for their high-pressure fuel pumps, which increased the risk of fire at crash, according to the statement.
The company will replace the defective coolers or install the protection plates for the recalled cars free of charge.
