BMW is recalling 140,000 5-series in China on steering fix

Article by Anita Panait, on August 5, 2013

BMW Brilliance Automotive is recalling 143,215 of its 5-series cars due to a problem regarding their electric power steering system, according to the Web site of China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. BMW Brilliance Automotive, a Chinese joint venture of German carmaker BMW, will recall some of its 5-series cars produced between 2009 and 2012.

The disclosure comes after the China's environment ministry refused to approve BMW’s plan to expand one of its sites in the country. The country’s Ministry of Environmental Protection disclosed that it sent back an application by BMW to expand its Shenyang site, citing inadequate wastewater analysis as well as the plan's failure to comply with government anti-pollution targets.

State media in China have been criticizing foreign luxury car brands for setting high prices for their offerings. Xinhua news agency reported last week that foreign carmakers are making excessive profits by selling imported luxury cars in China and should face an anti-trust probe into the matter.
