Thought for the day

"Fascism is the adoption by vested interests in a society of an authoritarian form of government in order to maintain their vested interests and prevent the reform of that society." -- Carroll Quigley

BMW is recalling a total of 83 iX M60 and i4s electric vehicles due to irregularities in the Samsung-made batteries that could catch fire. Owners have been asked to stop driving the cars and park them outside.

The iX M60 starts at $105,100 and the i4 just shy of $53,000, and those recalled were manufactured with high voltage battery that 'may have internal damage.'

The issue is impacting BMW iX SAV models built from 2022 to 2023 and i4 M50 vehicles produced between November 22, 2021 and July 30, 2022, according a letter BMW of North America sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Vehicles were sold at several dealers: Autogermana BMW, Puerto Rico; BMW Fairfax, Virginia; Checkered Flag BMW in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Pacific BMW in Glendale, California; and Fields BMW in Orlando, Florida.
