Recall is expanded for BMW M760Li xDrive over oil-leak risks

BMW saw a potential oil leak on the new M760Li, prompting them to recall the said vehicle last April. Today, a little over two months after issuing the first recall, BMW is once again recalling the M760Li for the same reason. While 97 examples have been initially affected, the latest recall notice covers a total of 206 vehicles as issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (or NHTSA).

One of the main reasons is the oil leaking from the oil cooler possibly going onto the front brakes, compromising the vehicle’s braking efficiency. The 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive sedan, which packs a total output of 592hp(600PS) and 590lb ft (800Nm) of torque, can go for a zero-to-62 mph sprint in only 3.9 seconds. Even if no injuries or accidents have been reported, recalling the affected vehicles is important to let them check and replace the engine oil cooler line or whatever is necessary to prevent any serious problems.

According to BMW, they will be working on the vehicles beginning August 7 and that the procedure will be free of charge and should not take more than two hours to complete. In spite of this, owners should wait to be contacted first by the dealership before bringing in their cars for a check-up.

2017 BMW M760Li xDrive recalled due to oil leaks

Bad news for BMW, their new flagship sedan, the 2017 BMW M760Li xDrive is already being recalled not so long after its release. Why so soon, you ask? Well, an oil line in the engine compartment is leaking oil.

The worst part though is that it leaks down to the front brakes, which is highly dangerous for the car and the driver since this could affect stopping power. Especially since it packs a 6.6 liter twin-turbo V12 engine, that yields up to 601 horsepower and 590 pound feet of torque. The four-wheel drive comes with an eight speed automatic and can sprint to 60 miles per hour from zero in just 3.6 seconds. Imagine having to stop a car that fast with brakes that don’t work well due to an oil leak.

The premium sedan has a top speed of 155 miles per hour, and if customers got the M Driver’s Package, it can be stretched up to 189 miles per hour. M760Li, like the standard 7-series, has an “Executive Drive Pro” suite as well. With Dynamic Damper Contolled air springs and Dynamic Drive that reduce roll and increase comfort while driving.

Porsche recalls the 918 Spyder because the suspension control arms might crack

If you have a Porsche 918 Spyder in your garage, take note that you will have to bring your supercar back to your dealership because it had been recalled again. The company announced that they will recall 305 examples of the 2015 model year in the United States as connecting shafts for the suspension control arms might crack.

The automaker found in their analysis that the connecting shafts of the longitudinal and transverse control arms have become vulnerable to cathodic stress corrosion cracking. And in the long run, this could affect the car’s components, which will eventually need replacement. The car’s handling could be impaired, especially under extreme conditions (like racetrack use), if this is not replaced immediately, and this will increase chances of a crash.

Once you have brought your Porsche 918 Spyder to the dealership, the automaker will replace these parts with improved versions. You actually don’t have to leave your car overnight as it will take about seven to eight hours to complete - that is, if you are willing to wait. The automaker also made it clear that there had been no incidents that are directly related to this problem. But it is advisable that you bring your car back to the dealership for the replacement, just to be sure. Porsche will replace all parts with no additional charge, of course.

Recall issued for Jeep’s Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to repair easily detachable fuel lines

There are various challenges attached to creating a vehicle with an output of 707 horsepower. First of all, the vehicle will have to be constantly supplied with a generous stream of fuel. Apparently, that task proved to be too much for one of the suppliers of the components for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the fuel lines of this Trackhawk could detach. And when that happens, not only will the 6.2 liter supercharged V8 engine starve, but it will also start a fire.

Having said that, the FCA has reportedly recalled 1,242 units of these models in the United States to check and repair their fuel lines. The automaker estimates that these models were produced between October 10 during the beginning of the production and December 10, which is when a new quality control process was initiated. Lower versions of the Grand Cherokee are not affected here even if they have been furnished by the same supplier. This is because their fuel lines were made on a separate production line.

The Middle East is home to a number of one-off vehicles, as well as specially modified luxury cars. Almost every month, we hear about new cars being unveiled or brought into the country, and a lot of them are BMWs.

Now, one of the latest models that BMW Abu Dhabi Motors has on display is the mind blowing range-topping 7 Series that’s currently on sale. The last model we saw before this was the impressive M760Li xDrive finished in Imola Red, which we saw a few weeks ago. Now, BMW’s Long Beach Blue M760Li xDrive is just as striking as the last model we saw.

This is definitely not the first time we have seen this hue on a car. In fact, it has been used on different models like the M2 pocket rocket. You might also agree if I say that this colour looks a bit too wild on the large sedan. Thanks to the black carbon fiber accents all throughout the car, from the mirror caps to the 21-inch multi-spoke 629 design wheels, the whole package now looks so much better. But that’s not all that this car has to boast about. The car also has a 3D Design Body kit that adds some nice details here and there. Lastly, it has got a trunk lid spoiler from the M Performance.

The current BMW 7 Series made its debut two years ago at the BMW headquarters in Munich, before it made its way to the International Auto Show in Germany weeks after. It was the first 7 Series that was introduced as a plug-in hybrid variant.

However, this one-off M760Li was customized by BMW Individual customization program. It wears an Austin Yellow paint job that looks good on the sedan, while riding on a set of 21-inch multi-spoke wheels. This is the only 7 Series that has been painted in this unique shade. This colour is typically reserved for an M4 or an M3, and you can find this unit showcased in BMW Abu Dhabi.

The 7 Series’ interior is then finished in creme-coloured leather, which stretches from the seats, to the dash, and to the center console. To bring some flair to it, BMW Individual also added wood paneling and black leather on the steering wheel and on the dash. When looking at it, the model’s exterior paint and interior colours seem to be lacking some contrast. We think that a black interior would make a better contrast with the yellow paint.

Every now and then, BMW Abu Dhabi gets quite a cool selection of customized cars, many of them tuned by BMW Individual. These are not just the nicest toys, but are also the most eye-catching ones as well, often in striking hues. The latest one that’s on display in one of their dealerships would be the M760Li (or M760i in the United States), and it has been finished in a Rallye Green paint that is part of the Individual catalog.

Apart from the stunning green paint, the BMW M760Li now has a front spoiler and an Alpina rear trunk lid spoiler has been added to complement that look. Smaller details such as satin chrome accents around the beefy front and side vents and mirror caps complete the exterior changes.

Changes do not stop on just the exterior, as the BMW’s cabin now features a fine-grain Merino leather upholstery in Opal white, contrasted by black stitching. Furthermore, it has been given extra accents in gloss black, as well as an upgraded entertainment system with dual screens in the rear. Since this model is a M760Li version, expect to see several “M” pieces inside and out to further boost the car’s appeal.

This BMW M760Li might be the car you are looking for if you are into yachts and sailing. As you know, the BMW 7-Series is the company’s range topping model, but now, it has partnered with Nautor’s Swan (which is known for their luxury sailing yachts). This special edition 760Li that comes with unique features was developed to honor 25 years of BMW Individual’s history.

To make the already luxurious model even more upscale, the company had to give it more upgrades. This includes unique brake calipers that have been finished in the same colour as the car, while wearing the exclusive Nautor’s Swan logo that only the exclusive model gets. The car also has the same logo affixed on the rear end. These are just some elements that you get on the outside, and most of the new luxury add-ons can be found in the cabin.

Details that will remind you of a yacht include teak wood paneling with joints filled precisely with a layer of rubber. This rubber helps the wood expand and contract when the climate changes, just like what you would find in a luxury sailing yacht. The trunk floor also gets carbon bonded wood components, matched with an Alcantara Smoke White finish.

Would you get a brand new BMM760i / M760Li xDrive for $156,700 in the US or €171,800 in Germany? You are probably wondering why it costs so much. This is because it is far from the ordinary model. This $156,700 M760iLi xDrive is currently located on the other side of the world in Abu Dhabi, and is also probably the most expensive BMW one could get as well.

Let us get to the details one by one. From the outside, it has a distinct Estoril Blue shade from the company’s individual catalog, riding on a set of huge two-tone 21-inch M Performance lightweight alloy wheels. The side profile features a silver bar that runs from one end to another, contrasting the blue paint. It features a new trunk lid spoiler that was especially made by Alpina.

To contrast the outside livery, the M760Li comes with a bold red leather interior that stretches from the center console to the front and rear seats. Of course, it is complemented with a high-tech entertainment system too. Overall, it has been given a longer wheelbase that gives the rear passengers extra legroom - space is indeed necessary in any luxurious car, especially if you are going to shell out some extra cash.

There is no denying that the new BMW M760Li xDrive really sits at the acme of the German premium carmaker’s 7-Series family. Along with its powerful and confident performance -- as powered by a new M Performance TwinPower Turbo V12 petrol engine -- the new BMW M760Li xDrive also boasts of being able to deliver segment-leading driving dynamics as well as ride comfort.

As an M Performance 7-Series, the BMW M760Li xDrive is about dynamics, especially concerning the amount of power emanating from its V12 engine. But aside from the fact the BMW M760Li xDrive is a true performer sitting on top of the 7-Series range, it also offers selections from BMW Individual. BMW Individual allows owners and would-be-owners to choose from an array of exterior and interior elements that aren’t usually offered. This means that customers could further evolve their BMW M760Li xDrive from something that is already special into a unit that is even more exclusive.

For instance, this particular model is wrapped in Frozen Dark Brown metallic exterior finish from BMW Individual, as accentuated by 20-inch BMW Individual Light alloy V-Spoke wheels with performance run-flat tires. Of course, there are more beautiful exterior finishes from BMW Individual the client could choose from. These include Moonstone Metallic finish, Almandine Brown Metallic color, Azurite Black Metallic and Ruby Black Metallic exterior finishes.

The North American unit of German premium carmaker BMW is recalling around 19,000 units of its BMW i3 electric vehicle because of the risk of fuel leak. You may ask, “An electric vehicle having a fuel leak?” Yes, EVs aren’t supposed to suffer from a fuel leak, simply because they get their energy from a battery pack, not from gasoline or petrol. That would be the case for a typical EV.

However, a fuel leak may occur in the case of EVs with a complementary internal combustion engine that serves its purpose to extend the distance the unit could travel. Simply put, once the battery pack runs out of energy, the gasoline engine kicks in as the EV seamlessly shifts from electric power to fossil fuel, thereby serving as a range extender.

While the BMW i3 is a pure electric vehicle, there are customers who want to travel farther distances than its battery power could provide. Thus, the German premium carmaker is also offering a version of the BMW i3 that is fitted with a small range-extending gasoline engine. This version – the BMW i3 Rex – has been recently found to be at risk of a fuel vapor line, mainly due to the positioning of the fuel tank vent line and the ribbed wire protection sleeve for the battery pack.

Come on baby, light my fire… Suddenly, a recall becomes a sensational news for more than 12 minutes and 33 seconds. Lamborghini earlier this week announced it is issuing a recall on the Aventador model range. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall includes the Super Veloce, the Pirelli Edition, the Miura Homage and the Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario.

The notice said there are issues concerning the vehicle’s Evaporative Emission Control System, which had to do with some faulty purge valves and defective ROV (roll over valve) along its fuel tank.

The ROV basically seals off the valve opening in order to prevent fuel leaks under unfortunate circumstances. The purge valve meanwhile controls how much fuel vapor is purged from the carbon canister.

Volkswagen Group’s dieselgate saga continues, but it appears the German company would be able to get out of trouble, but it would not be unscathed. This development comes as Volkswagen entered into an agreement with the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and regulatory agencies to compensate customers whose vehicles are powered by the group’s 3.0-liter TDI diesel engines implicated in the emissions cheating scandal in 2015.

The new settlement agreement covers 83,000 Volkswagen Group vehicles powered by the group’s 3.0-liter TDI V6 engines that have been found to have employed software that helps them evade the emissions testing process. No thanks to this software, these V6 diesel engines seem cleaner than they actually are. Parties in the agreement – coming in the form of a proposed Consent Decree – include Volkswagen AG, Volkswagen Group of America, US DOJ, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the State of California, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the California Attorney General. The latest settlement agreement is more or less similar to the one that covers Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter TDI engines.

Under the proposed Consent Decree, Volkswagen has agreed to recall and/or buy back the affected 3.0-liter TDI V6 vehicles from Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche brands. The program will be separated into two parts.

Known for its luxurious bespoke interiors, the Bentayga's $275,000 price tag seems to be worth every penny for some people. However, Bentley happens to have overlooked something very important while assembling the production model for its latest Bentayga SUV. As it turns out, the bolts on the posh vehicle’s seat mechanism and dashboard were not properly secured. (tsk, tsk)

We know for a fact that a loosely tightened screw could compromise the vehicle’s overall safety. Over time, the frequent vibrations could make it lose its alignment completely. This is not something you’d expect from an SUV that costs an arm and a leg. Among Bentley’s bespoke interior add-ons include a fishing set, a Breitling tourbillon clock and a Linley hamper set that you can stuff with an exclusive picnic menu from Gloucestershire England’s Daylesford organic farm.

Only this year, Bentley added a new engine range for its famous Bentayga model. The Bentayga diesel comes with 4.0 litre V8 turbo charged direct injection engine. It uses the same powerplant as that of Audi’s SQ7 SUV. Thus, allowing it to produce as much as 429 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Basically, the Bentayga diesel can go from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour in less than 5 seconds, with top speed reaching 168 miles per hour.

It costs a fortune to buy a premium car from luxury brands like BMW. It costs even a bigger fortune to purchase its performance version. Let us introduce BMW’s first-ever 7 Series M Performance model, the BMW M760i xDrive. Good news for potential buyers in the United States, the fired-up version of the BMW 7 Series is coming to town.

As promised, BMW divulged how much the all-new BMW M760i xDrive would cost as the launch date of the car approaches. It is set to arrive in early 2017. Buyers would have to pay as low as $153,800, excluding destination and handling charges. But what can customers get from the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive?

Well, the 2017 BMW M760i xDrive is powered by an M Performance TwinPower Turbo 6.6-liter V12 gasoline engine that develops up to 601 hp at 5,500 rpm and up to 590 lb-ft of torque available at 1,500 rpm. This V12 engine allows the M760i xDrive to sprint from zero to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds) and reach a limited top speed of 155 mph. This powerplant is complemented by an M sport exhaust system that allows the delivery of an audio track that further accentuates the dynamic character of the BMW M760i xDrive.

Automotive engineers have studied and have undergone rigorous training to be able to create the perfect motor vehicle - and this includes making the most precise mechanical and natural systems. Knowing that people do make mistakes, it is the automotive engineer's task to think ahead for possible problems that may arise in the future.

They have to put themselves in someone else's shoes, someone who doesn't speak automotive jargon, and be able to make solutions that are as easy as one, two, three. Being an automotive engineer is a tough job and there will always be some glitch in the system where things just don't go the way it's supposed to.

Even those who have built the most technologically advanced cars have to go through trial and error to spot problems. Lucky for those whose technical problems have arisen prior to distribution but there are just unlucky few that have had to be recalled. One of those unlucky few is the Bugatti Veyron.

For failing to manage the recalls properly and in a timely manner, a record $105 million fine will be imposed on Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, according to two sources. They also said that this matter will be handled by an independent safety monitor under extensive penalties that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration imposed.

In some of the cases, FCA will have to buy back some of the vehicles as part of the government’s investigation into how it handled almost 24 recalls that cover 11 million light vehicles. The recall covers 1.5 million older Jeep models with rear fuel tanks that were related to multiple fatal fires.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report the fines and the terms of the settlement between the NHTSA and FCA. As part of the deal, FCA intends to give cash to convince those who own older Jeeps with rear fuel tanks to get repairs done. The sources said that the FCA may even offer an extra trade-in allowance on top of the value of recalled Jeep models if customers choose to trade it in.

A recall has been issued for 814 Ferrari vehicles to repair side airbags that were installed at the wrong angle. The recall, which begins on July 30, covers eight different models built from December 19, 2014, to April 29, 2015. These vehicles cost anywhere from $200,000 to more than $1.4 million.

From the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, we learned that Ferrari discovered the defects while it was conducting tests on the steering column of a 458 Italia. The Italian automaker found out this airbag deployed in a rotated orientation and this may lead to injury.

The leather skin that covered the airbag module had been incorrectly glued and the air-bag cushions had been put in at the wrong angle. Japanese supplier Takata Corp. built these airbags but they don’t have the same issues as those airbags that are currently involved in a massive recall across many brands.

A recall will be issued for 88,346 Dodge Challengers by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to repair a defect with the driver-side frontal airbag, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced on its website last Saturday. According to the NHTSA safety report, the recall covers 2008-2010 model year Challengers produced between September 2007 and October 2010.

This report adds to the list that the NHTSA got from the company last May in relation to a nationwide recall to replace defective airbags built by Japanese supplier Takata Corp. The report revealed that moisture may get into the inflators on the affected devices and this could lead to rupture, spraying metal bits on the driver.

The agency also said that Chrysler will get a replacement for the frontal airbag inflators but this isn’t available for now. These Takata airbags are at the center of what is likely to become the biggest auto safety recall in the U.S., related to 8 fatalities and hundreds of injuries that span more than 10 years.
