BMW recalls 2011 X5 diesel for steering belt tensioner problem

has initiated a recall for some diesel-powered 2011 X5 sports activity vehicles. The German automaker says that faulty welds in the power steering belt tensioner could have "incipient cracks" that could lead to a malfunction over time. If that occurs, the vehicle could lose its power-assisted steering, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall involves 923 diesel-fueled X5 models manufactured from March 31, 2011 through May 19, 2011. The safety-related recall is expected to begin in early July, with BMW dealers replacing the belt tensioners free of charge. Owners of affected vehicles are urged to contact BMW's customer relations division with any questions or concerns. Hit the jump for the official recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
