2010 BMW X5 M RecallsThe Brake System Power Assist May Fail
All modern vehicles use some type of power assist for the braking system. The 8 cylinder models being recalled use a vacuum pump, connected to the power booster by a vacuum hose, to provide the necessary assist. The vacuum pump may leak a small amount of lubricating oil into the vacuum hose and this contamination could result in a loss of power assist, leading to increased stopping distances. Dealers will correct this concern by replacing the brake vacuum line with an improved version.
