BMW recalling 1.4 million vehicles for risk of fires
 

 
I know some of you own these thought I'd share it.

The company has filed two recalls with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They affect versions of the 3-series, 5-series, X5, X3 and Z3.
The first recall, which spans more than 740,000 vehicles, covers a part of the engine that can short circuit and melt. This increases the chances of a fire, even when the vehicle isn't in use.

The second recall, which is for roughly 673,000 vehicles, deals with faulty wiring for the heating and air conditioning system. There's a chance it can overheat, causing the electrical connectors to melt and increasing the risk of fire, even when the vehicle is unattended.
BMW received four incident reports related to this issue, with three reports of injuries.

This happened in my Silverado with my blower motor resistor. Had the heat on blast in December and all of a sudden the whole fu*king cab was filled with black smoggy smoke. Found out I ignored a recall notice for the guy and had to jump through hoops to get Chevy to fix it for free.

Man, Hondas with their higher end engines still dont get matched with a tranny that can handle it? This has been their problem for decades. Ridiculous. At least now they seem to be more “bulletproof” from straight failing but still inadequate huh. Thats like the only criticism I have of Honda/Acura.

word is the tranny is the same tranny they use in the Hemi Dodge Rams which i own and i can say my Dodge Ram tranny is smooth AF so i wonder if it's just the software coding is so locked down..
everyone ends up buying the sprint throttle boosters to bypass the issue and say with it installed it rooms as normal..
this tranny should have absolutely no probably running with this engine, even modded nicely

This has been going on for a while. Saw this on 20/20 or some sh*t months ago. Burning peoples houses down and all. From what I remember it has something to do with the autostart/stop malfunctioning, so the car is never really off.
