Seoul sources stated that a BMW caught fire on Monday in South Korea, the latest in a series of similar cases affecting the German car maker which have led to a recall amid rising security concerns. Meanwhile the fire originated in the rear portion of the BMW M3 model on a highway south of Seoul at rush hour, although all the occupants of the vehicle were safe.
According to report police official said "He heard a bang in the rear of the car while he was driving it and then smoke began to rise," adding that he stopped the car immediately and came out of the vehicle along with another person travelling with him. This was the 39th case of a blaze in BMW vehicles in 2018 and affected a model which was not included”.
Moreover the investigations
by the police and firemen were underway to determine the cause of the latest
blaze. Hence the Bavaria based multinational said that the defect causing the
engine to catch fire was in the gas re-circulation system installed only in
diesel models. Earlier on August 9, the company apologized at a press
conference in Seoul and announced the recall of 106,000 diesel vehicles to
correct the defects from August 20 onward.
