— About 32 BMW vehicles are recalled because the tie rods may not have been assembled properly.
Recalled are 2018-2019 BMW X1 sDrive28i, X1 xDrive28i, 2019 X2 xDrive28i, MINI Cooper S Convertible, MINI Countryman and MINI John Cooper Works Countryman vehicles.
The steering gear tie rods may suffer from excessive wear of the tie rod ends, eventually causing them to break.
Busted tie rods can cause drivers to lose control of the vehicles.
The recall is expected to begin October 7, 2019, when dealerships will replace the tie rods and ball joints.
Customers with questions should call BMW customer service at 800-525-7417 or MINI at 866-825-1525.
