BMW has announced that it will recall its electric ActiveE (as well as certain models of the 2012 BMW Z4), because of a problem with the power steering. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) said that variations in electrical current may occur within the electric power steering systems, leading to a sudden loss of power steering assistance.

The ActiveE is currently available in the US only for lease, as part of a two-year test program. BMW will notify ActiveE lessees of the problem within a few days, and their local dealer will replace the steering-assistance module free of charge.

Drivers can find details at www.SaferCar.gov (NHTSA campaign number 12V302000), or contact BMW at 800-525-7417.
