BMW said Monday the recall affected 235,000 Minis built between March 2006 and January 2011. A fault in the electric water pump that cools the turbo charger could lead to overheating and cause a fire.

Meanwhile VW said on Monday that the youngest generation of diesel engines would be recalled - affecting some 300,000 cars worldwide. A flaw in the diesel fuel injector rail meant vibrations could sometimes cause fissures in the engines. The subsidiaries Audi, Skoda and Seat were also hit by the recall.

A spokesman for Volkswagen, Europe's largest auto maker by sales, said that the company began a recall of 299,000 cars with diesel engines in October last year due to possible problems caused by cracks in the fuel-injection system.

VW has notified the car owners but didn't say how many vehicles had been recalled so far.

The cracks can occur in VW's Golf, Passat, Jetta, Tiguan and other models built since 2009. The company's Audi, Skoda and Seat brands are also affected, according to the VW spokesman.

BMW also said that it is recalling a total of 235,000 cars of its Mini brand worldwide due to a possible malfunction of the electric water pump that cools the turbo charger.





A spokesman for the world's largest luxury-car maker said there hadn't been any reported accidents related to the possible malfunction.

According to the NHTSA filing, the auxiliary water pump that cools the turbo charger has an electronic circuit board, which can malfunction and overheat. As a result, the circuit board may smolder and possibly catch fire.

BMW will notify the car owners and dealers will replace the water pump free of charge. The recall is expected to start next month.

Last year, a similar technical issue triggered the recall of around cars of BMW's namesake brand as well as more than 500 Rolls-Royce ultra-luxury cars.
