The German luxury car manufacturer says that this recall has started last Friday, July 28. Affected vehicles are BMW 5 Series models produced between January 30, 2013 and June 29, 2013, as reported.
 
The reason for this recall is that the rear reflectors of those vehicles are said not to reflect enough light in the dark. Hence, it’s quite difficult for other drivers to see the car on the road and can cause some potential safety hazards.
