BMW is recalling more than 134,000 5-Series cars in the U.S. because the rear lights can fail.

The recall affects 528i, 535i, 550i and M5 cars from the 2008 through 2010 model years.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that increased electrical resistance can damage connections to the lights. That could cause loss of tail, brake turn-signal or backup lights.

The agency says the loss of lights can increase the risk of a crash.

The cars were made from March 1, 2007 to Dec. 31, 2009.

Dealers will replace part of the rear lamp connections at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to begin next month.

Owners can call BWM at (800) 525-7417 for more information.
