The expanded recall covers certain X5 and X6 SUVs from the 2011 to 2014 model years in the U.S. and Canada.READ MORE: Governor Whitmer Announces Proposal To Invest In Affordable, High-Quality Child Care For Michigan Families

BMW says some front universal joint seals were manufactured wrong and can let water and dirt into the joint. That can cause faster wear and potential failure. The company says in government documents that it has no reports of crashes or injuries.
BMW will replace the front driveshaft at no cost to owners starting on April 24.MORE NEWS: Michigan Reports 338 New COVID-19 Cases, 8 Deaths
