BMW is recalling certain model year 2012 x5 xdrive 35i Sports Activity Vehicles, manufactured from December 19, 2011, through December 21, 2011.
Due to a manufacturing error, engagement of the transmission’s parking lock may not occur even if the “P” position has been selected and is displayed.
Power train: Automatic transmission
If the driver believes that the transmission is in park and does not use the parking brake, the vehicle could roll away after exiting the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the automatic transmission free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. Owners may contact BMW customer relations and services at 1-800-525-7417.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to Safercar.
