BMW will recall diesel models to fix emissions glitch

Quote:
About 2,740 2011 and 2012 model year X5 xDrive 50i and X6 xDrive 50i vehicles, and 21,600 3-series diesel models, will be recalled, the automaker said. The recalls are scheduled for May 9, with a customer letter to follow, BMW North America spokesman Dirk Arnold said.

BMW said certain emissions components, including the SCR catalyst, the DEF mixer and the EGR valve, may improperly overstate vehicle mileage, causing emissions standards to be exceeded and the illumination of the "Service Engine Soon" light.

The way the article makes it sound, all of the vehicles are going to get the recall. But - who knows, that might just be poor writing. I've never had an issue either, but I think we're all going to get the letter.

Would you ever get an error if something was amiss? It sounded like the system calculates the expected emissions from the combustion process then injects the appropriate amount of DEF ... if it was miscalibrated would anything else happen (aside from unreduced emissions)

Looks like inspection and replacement of parts IF NEEDED along with software update. That said I've never had a problem (CES)
