BMW 1 Series ActiveE Recall

Report Receipt Date: JAN 17, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V017000 
Component(s): POWER TRAIN 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 360 

BMW is recalling certain model year 2011 1-Series ActiveE passenger vehicles manufactured August 17, 2011, through December, 19, 2011. Due to an insufficient sealing of the drivetrain housing assembly there may be a lack of grease lubrication on the gear shaft that transfers power from the electric motor to the transmission.
Over time, the connection between the electric motor and the transmission may wear, possibly resulting in a sudden loss of vehicle propulsion. This could increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
