Car troubles are the worst.
This is probably the last bit of news you needed if you badly need your car this week.
BMW cars sold in Ireland are now apart of a major UK recall due to an electrical fault which is causing some of their vehicles to cut out.
The Irish Independent has confirmed that the number of cars being recalled here is over 10,000.
The cars that are part of the recall here in Ireland are the BMW: 1 Series, 3 Series, X1 Series and Z4 models. The models up for recall are manufactured between March 2007 and September 2011 and include both fuel types.
Over 300,000 BMW car have been affected in total in the UK with Ireland bringing the grand total up to somewhere around the 320,000 region.
In a statement, BMW said:
"We now recognise that there may have been some cases of similar power-supply issues in vehicles not covered by the original recall. In order to reassure customers with concerns about the safety of their vehicles, we are voluntarily extending the recall.
"We are therefore announcing today that we will take the proactive step of expanding the existing UK recall to cover all vehicles potentially affected by the power-supply issue."
