BMW X60 Stop Sale Recall - Check Your Local Dealership for Information
Pre-Owned 2022 BMW X6 M50i SUV in Charlotte #P62770A | Hendrick Honda

X60 has recently been subject to a stop sale at Baltimore. This is due to an issue with the high voltage battery software, which was recalled for all cars produced from October 6th to November 5th. The recall requires an update of the software, but this does not fix the underlying issue.

The UK have reported that the problem is related to the Electric Drive Unit (HEAT module), and that parts are expected to arrive in the next few weeks. However, there is a global shortage of front EDUs, meaning that it may take up to 12 weeks or more for dealerships to get their hands on them and complete the rework.

It's also been suggested that the issue relates to a weld issue in the drive unit, although this has yet to be confirmed by BMW. In any case, customers who have had their cars affected by this stop-sale will need to wait until parts become available before they can receive their vehicles.In the meantime, BMW has advised customers to contact their local dealership for more information. The dealerships will be able to provide advice on how best to proceed with the recall and any other related issues.

BMW is also offering a loaner car service while repairs are being carried out, so that customers can still get around without having to wait too long for their cars. This should help alleviate some of the inconvenience caused by this stop-sale issue.

The company has also said that they are working hard on resolving this issue as quickly as possible and have promised an update soon regarding when parts will become available again in Baltimore and beyond. In addition, they have offered a goodwill gesture of up to $500 towards repair costs or rental fees incurred due to delays in receiving replacement parts from BMW's suppliers.

For now though, it looks like X60 owners affected by this stop sale may need patience until new parts arrive at dealerships across Baltimore and beyond - but hopefully not too much longer!
