BMW and its Rolls-Royce subsidiary have issued a recall covering nearly 80,000 vehicles because of problems with their braking systems.

Recalled models include:

The company tells federal safety officials that the vehicles “have been assembled with an integrated brake system that may not function according to specifications.”

Modern cars have mechanical brakes and electronic boosters that increase braking power. BMW says the mechanical brakes are not affected by this problem, so owners should still be able to stop the cars. But the boost function can fail, potentially increasing the stopping distance without warning. That could cause an accident.

Also, the company says, anti-lock systems and dynamic stability control can fail, which “could affect vehicle handling and control.” Owners might see a warning message on the dashboard as the problem develops.

Dealers will replace the entire integrated braking system to correct the problem. Recall repairs are always free.

Manufacturers recall millions of cars every year to fix safety defects. While automakers try to reach every owner to ask them to bring the vehicle in for repair, they rarely reach them all. Millions of vehicles on American roads need free recall repairs. To find out if your car is one of them, check the easy VIN tool at our recall center.
