2012 BMW X5 xDrive Recalls
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
The bolts that secure the housing for the internal engine timing components can loosen over time, possibly breaking. This can cause the engine to stall.
On X5 models equipped with a diesel engine, the vehicle may unexpectedly lose power steering due to an engine drive belt issue.
Certain vehicles may develop a power steering fluid leak from the steering gear.
Vehicles equipped with an 8 or 12 cylinder engine are being recalled because the circuit board for the electric water pump can overheat. This could lead to a fire.
On six automatic transmission equipped vehicles, the transmission's parking lock may not function when the shifter is in the "P" position.
On vehicles equipped with a diesel engine, the drive belt tensioner may fail. This could result in a sudden loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash.
