Massive BMV Recall

BMW is recalling 1.4 million vehicles for a fire risk.

15,000 of those vehicles were sold in Canada.

The company says that the vehicles should be parked outside until repairs are completed.

A heater ventilation valve can overheat and melt the valve. This increases the risk of a fire even when the vehicle is not in use.

Dealers will replace the wiring and connectors.
