BMW Group will recall 348,000 BMWs and 5,800 Rolls-Royces worldwide because of brake problems.
BMW 5-series, 6-series and 7-series models – built between July 2001 and November 2009 – with V8 and V12 engines are affected, along with 905 Rolls-Royces.
The company says the cars may have a fault with the power-braking system, but the cars are not unsafe and car owners are not required to have their vehicle checked.
A company statement reads: "In the affected vehicles, a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance”.
This does not mean the brakes themselves will fail, however, and there have been no reported incidents.
The news comes a day after the Natinoal Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the US road safety body, said it was investigating a potential power steering problem in Mini models.See all the latest BMW reviews, news and video
