BMW screws up on software front

by on23 February 2018

It's easily done

German car giant BMW admitted today that it is going to have to recall 18,000 cars because of a software SNAFU.


The giant said in a statement that the series 5 and 7 luxury series said its techies had made a mistake and downloaded the wrong software to the units.

BMW said in a prepared press release that it had informed “the authorities”.

Presumably, it also alerted the owners of the 18,000 cars that everything wasn't quite right.

Let's wait for the days of self-driving cars and incorrect coding, eh? I wonder who will cover the insurance liability when those days arrive, real soon now.
