BMW AG, a Germany-based automaker, is recalling around 324,000 diesel vehicles in Europe, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has reported.
The automaker is recalling the vehicles to fix a technical fault that has caused engine fires in South Korea. A faulty exhaust gas recirculation module in BMW diesel cars caused 27 engine fires in South Korea this year, prompting the company to recall 106,000 vehicles there and issue an apology.
The automaker is expanding the recall to Europe, with 96,300 vehicles affected in Germany, to replace the module if the fault is confirmed.
