The affected models are the BMW 1 Series, the 3 Series, the Z4 sports car and the X1 urban 4×4, both diesel and gasoline, manufactured between March 2007 and August 2011
The German car brand BMW called Wednesday to review 312,000 vehicles in the UK for an electrical problem that can cause an abrupt break in contact.
A spokesman for the group in this country confirmed this advanced information to the AFP by the BBC. This is the extension of a call to previous review of 36,000 cars made last year for the same reasons.
BMW recognizes in this way that the problem affects more vehicles than was thought with the first appeal, after a report from the BBC said that the problem was of a magnitude greater than estimated.
The affected models are the BMW 1 Series, the 3 Series, the Z4 sports car and the X1 urban 4×4, both diesel and gasoline, manufactured between March 2007 and August 2011.
The constructor explained that the problem can be solved in two hours by replacing a piece.
The first call to review was made after the death of a man in an accident in the United Kingdom, on Christmas Day 2016. This driver was at the wheel of a Ford Fiesta and died trying to dodge a BMW stopped on the road.
Those problems already caused the call to repair 750,000 BMW vehicles worldwide in 2013.
