Units: About 30,000
BMW is recalling more than 30,000 SUVs to fix an oil leak that can knock out the power-assisted braking, according to the Associated Press. The company says a small amount of oil can leak from a brake hose and cause the power-assisted braking to fail. Brakes would still work, but the problem could increase stopping distances and cause a crash. The recall covers X5 SUVs from the 2007 through 2010 model years. The vehicles were made between Sept. 12, 2006, and March 18, 2010. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries.
