    BMW recalls 75,000 cars..

    BMW recalls 75,000 cars due to faulty seat heaters. Here is more info..


    FRANKFURT -- BMW AG will recall some 75,000 of its 5- and 7-series cars after problems were discovered with front-seat heating mats, the German luxury car maker said on Tuesday.

    Seat mats could overheat in certain circumstances, damaging the surrounding upholstery and possibly resulting in slight burns, a spokesman said. The defect is limited to the seats and does not affect other parts of the car.

    He put the estimated cost of the recall at 16 million euros ($21.7 million).

    About 69,750 sedans of the 5 series launched in mid-2003 are affected by the recall, of which more than 29,000 were sold in Germany. Of the 7 series, 5,550 cars were affected. The recall affects cars made between February 2003 and June 2004, the spokesman said.

    BMW's Chinese venture with local partner Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Ltd. also said it would recall more than 1,000 of the 5-series sedans made at its Shenyang plant due to faulty heating mats.

    Earlier this year, BMW recalled about 4,000 of its 5-, 6- and 7-series and X5 off-road vehicles due to engine problems.

    In April, BMW had recalled more than 18,000 cars in the previous 5 series in Japan.

    very disappointing

    I had a glimmer of hope that they would call back all X5's, indefinitely

    Dude, I'd rather be burning my rear than speeding down the road with no brakes.
