BMW of North America is recalling eight model year 2016 X5 xDrive40e vehicles manufactured July 29, 2015, to September 9, 2015.
The recalled vehicles have a Digital Motor Electronic (DME) control unit that may have a loose electrical ground cable, possibly causing an under-voltage condition which would result in the transmission shifting to neutral.
If the vehicle unexpectedly shifts to neutral, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the ground cable, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 6, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
