June 19, 2018—BMW is recalling 33,214 of its 2009 to 2013 X5 xDrive 35d diesel SUVs because an engine idler pulley may break, which could lead to a sudden loss of power steering, according to Consumer Reports.

Although drivers will still be able to steer the vehicle if power steering fails, doing so will be more difficult.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the alternator warning light on the dashboard will be illuminated if the idler pulley fails.
