A recall has been issued for about 35-thousand BMW SUVs. The recall involves the 2009 through 2012 X-5 models sold in the US and Canada.
Company officials say a bolt holding a pulley can loosen and break, causing loss of power assisted steering and increasing the risk of a crash.
No crashes have been reported from the problem, but BMW dealers will notify owners in January and will replace the bolt and tighten it to the proper specifications.
They'll also add a coating to keep the bolt from coming loose.
