CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 673,000 model-year 2006-11 BMW 323i, 325i, 325xi, 328i, 328xi, 330i, 330xi, 335i, 335xi and M3 sedans; model-year 2007-11 328i xDrive, 335i xDrive and 335is sedans; and model-year 2009-11 335d sedans

The Problem: The wiring and electrical connectors for the system that controls airflow for the heating and air-conditioning system may overheat, which could cause the electrical connectors to melt, increasing the risk of a fire even when the vehicle is unattended.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the wiring and electrical connectors for free.

What Owners Should Do: BMW will begin notifying owners Dec. 18. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
