Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“This recall from BMW raises serious questions about the adequacy of the car recall system in this country. Drivers will be asking why it took so long for BMW to fully recall these potentially dangerous cars in the UK, several years later than recalls around the same fault in a number of other countries.
“The Government must ensure that the DVSA has the powers that it needs to hold manufacturers to account and protect road-users from the dangers of unsafe vehicles.”
