BMW, VW issuing recalls over fire risks

WASHINGTON — Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and Volkswagen AG recalled vehicles in the United States for defects that could cause fires, the federal auto-safety regulator said Friday.

BMW, based in Munich, recalled 1 Series luxury cars for model years 2008 to 2011 for a flaw in front-seat safety-belt retractors that could ignite, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. The notice didn't say how many vehicles are affected.

Volkswagen, based in Wolfsburg, Germany, recalled 15,902 2009 Routan minivans because rear-door latches can short-circuit and catch fire.
