WASHINGTON (AP) -- BMW says it will recall nearly 200,000 vehicles to fix leaks that could develop in the power braking system.

BMW of North America says the recall involves BMW 5 Series, 6 Series and 7 Series vehicles powered by V8 and V12 engines covering the 2002 through 2010 model years and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars from the 2003-2010 model years.

The German automaker says a leak could develop in the power braking system, leading to a vacuum loss and the reduction of power braking assistance. Mechanical braking is still available to slow and stop the vehicle.

BMW says there have been no reports of accidents or injuries. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
