On some of these cars, increased resistance at the taillight electrical contact points may cause damage to the ground terminal and the housing of the connector, says the release from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In case your vehicle is one of the unlucky ones, the rear light functions could work intermittently or might stop altogether, therefore posing a limited threat to other traffic participants.

At the moment, no reports of accidents or injuries related to this malfunction were reported to BMW but the decision has been made that BMW dealers will replace the light bulbs for all the 5 Series sold in the US between 2008 and 2010, free of charge, starting with October.

One thing's for sure: while Toyotas are being recalled for malfunctioning brakes and accelerator pedals, BMWs are being recalled for light bulbs.
