BMW recall details

The recall affects V8 and V12-powered BMW 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, and Rolls-Royce models produced between July 2001 and November 2009.

"In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance," said the company in a statement.

However, mechanical braking is still available to slow and stop the vehicle, and there have been no reported accidents or injuries.

A BMW spokesman said that the problem was identified via feedback from routine vehicle servicing, and that the recall is entirely voluntary.

Any concerned BMW owners should contact the BMW customer service.

Very good read....It seems only the higher end cars are affected though. I wonder what the repair is to fix the problem.
