Rolls-Royce & BMW brake leak recall

Rolls-Royce & BMW brake leak recall

BMW’s U.S. division is recalling almost every V8 and V12 model they’ve sold in North America, including the Rolls-Royce Phantom, stretching as far back as 2002.

The U.S. recall totals about 198,000 cars. Their power braking systems have the potential to develop a leak. Though the leak can cause a reduction in braking power, BMW says the vehicles can still be brought to a stop safely. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue.

The recalled models include the 2002-2008 BMW 745i, 745Li, 750i, 750Li, 760i and 760Li, the 2007-2008 BMW Alpina B7, the 2004-2010 BMW 645i and 650i, the 2004-2010 BMW 545i and 550i, and the 2003-2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom.

It is likely that the recall will be carried out in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries. Oddly enough, my 2000 BMW M Roadster developed a serious brake leak too that I fixed with my own money. No recall for that though.

Update: The company has confirmed that 6,296 BMW and 485 Rolls-Royce cars are affected in the UAE.

What do you think?



  1. Crazy!!its a never ending saga it seems..

  2. clever enough to recall them before anyone sues the company if any fault occurs, well never expected it from bmw and RR

  3. I got this assumption that carmakers have taken cost cutting and mass production to a super turbo fast level to cover up the increasing demand?
