BMW announced a voluntary recall for its 2009 model year diesel-powered X5 xDrive35d. The recall will affect approximately 2,120 SUVs. BMW ordered the recall due to a problem with the vehicle's diesel fuel pre-heater system. An error in the system could lead to an electrical overload that would keep the fuel heater permanently turned "on".

Because the system is designed to pre heat the fuel during cold weather before it is combusted, the X5 could experience severe damage if the system were left on permanently. Because the system can potentially remain on even when the ignition is off, the defect could prematurely kill the battery. The damage could be a serious as an engine fire, however, if the system remained on for a prolonged time.

The recall affects BMW Diesel X5 models manufactured between October 1, 2008 and June 12, 2009. BMW says it will instruct dealerships to repair the system free of charge. The safety recall will begin in October. Owners of affected models can contact BMW or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for further details.
