A total of 2,642 units of the diesel-powered X5 and X6 models stay affected by the recall.
BMW has issued a recall of certain diesel-powered 2012-13 BMW X5 and X6 models in the United States due to a machining error, which has caused the power steering fluid leak.
The leaking power steering fluid can potentially spray onto hot parts in the vehicle, increasing the risk of fire. The BMW X5 diesel had also been recalled in the past over transmission issue, fuel filter problems and emission standards.
A total of 2,642 units built between 20 April 2012 and 29 May 2012 have been affected by the aforementioned recall. BMW will begin contacting the owners in July 2012 and will inspect and replace the steering gear on affected vehicles as necessary.
