BMW Recalls 367,000 2004 to 2010 Model Five and Six Series Cars

BMW has instigated a massive recall in cooperation with the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall covers 367,000 5 and 6 series cars manufactured from 2004 to 2010. The reason for the recall is a loose battery cable connector in the trunk that poses a potential to overheat.

BMW says that in extreme cases the overheating could lead to a smoldering fire in the trunk mat leading to possible BMW flambé. BMW says it only knows of one actual fire in the US. The company suggests owners of affected cars should park the car outdoors until the battery cable can be replaced.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
