BMW Recalls Model X6 In Which Sambo's Brother Got Into Fatal Accident
Top German automobile producer BMW announced the recalling of 156,000 cars and sports utility vehicles in the United States because of possible engine problems, which comes soon after Nigeria's Vice President's brother died in the accident involving one of such models.
According to the information provided by NY Daily, 128i, 328i, Z4, 135i, 335i, 528i, 535i and 640i cars, so as many X3, X5, and X6 SUVs, will be recalled starting from May.
The company officials explained that bolts that hold a camshaft housing can loosen and break. It may consequently result in the reduced power or stalling thus increasing accident risk.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that dealers would replace bolts free of charge.
It would be recalled that the younger brother of Nigeria's Vice President Namadi Sambo, Captain Yusuf Sabo Sambo (Retd), was driving a BMW X6 when he got into a fatal accident.
