BMW is recalling 49 vehicles across eight nameplates because of a brake booster fault.
“Due to a manufacturing fault in the hydraulic unit brake booster, panic braking could cause loss of brake power assistance and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) without prior warning,” the company says in its recall notice.
“Although the electronic brake force distribution function is maintained, the loss of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) may result in reduced braking performance.
“The reduction in breaking performance could increase the risk of an accident and injury to vehicle occupants or other road users. In the event of a serious accident, this may result in death.”
