BMW X1 SUV 2018 recall: engine cut-out issues

The fit of the materials appears first rate, so we have no reason to believe the X1 won’t hold together well over time. Also, the rest of the cabin has the same air of classy build we’d expect of a BMW, but in May 2018 BMW announced that 312,000 cars in Britain would be the subject of a recall following a BBC Watchdoginvestigation.

Affecting X1s built up until August 2011, the recall centres upon an electrical fault that can cause both petrol and diesel engines to cut out while the cars are being driven.

If one of the first-generation X1s is on your used car shopping list then check with a BMW retailer to determine whether the remedial work has been performed.
