WASHINGTON -- BMW of North America is recalling 198,000 vehicles to fix leaks that can develop in the power-braking system.
BMW said the recall will cover 5-, 6- and 7-series vehicles powered by V-8 and V-12 engines in 2002-10 models. Also covered will be 2003-10 Rolls-Royce Phantoms.
The leaks can reduce the effectiveness of the power brakes, although no accidents or injuries have been reported. Mechanical braking is still available to slow and stop the affected vehicles.
