Owners of some BMWs advised to park outside


DETROIT -- U.S. safety regulators and BMW say owners of some 5-Series and 6-Series cars should park them outside until a battery cable problem can be fixed.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Thursday said BMW is recalling more than 367,000 of the cars in the U.S. from the 2004 to 2010 model years. A battery cable connector can loosen in the trunk and overheat. In extreme cases, it could lead to a smoldering fire in a trunk floor mat, according to NHTSA.
