BMW Recalls 30,265 X5s For Possible Power-Assist Braking Failure

Leak from Vacuum Pump Could Cause Brake Loss

BMW has issued a recall for 30,265 2007-2010 X5 SUVs for a possible brake power assist failure. The cause of the issue has been traced to a vacuum pump that may leak lubricating oil into the hose. This leak would lead to a loss of power-assist braking, eventually creating an increased stopping distance that could result in an accident.
