BMW mega recall on older vehicles

The headline for this has just flashed up on my BBC News App

2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, the best car I have ever owned, totally reliable only a cou0le of rattles in 3 years, now no longer in my care
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

Without being in anyway disrespectful, I can't see why the BBC seem to be blaming the fatal accident on BMW. Confused "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin

'06 RRS 2.7 TDV6 HSE

Disco II Td5 - gone (went to Africa)
Disco I V8 - gone (no engine, brakes or power-steering but towed away by a Suzuki Jimny on a 6ft rope)
Disco I V8 - gone
[Plus two Freelanders I'd rather forget but my wife liked]

Agreed. Someone crashing in to a tree to avoid a broken down vehicle is not the fault of the broken down vehicle's manufacturer. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Its not good for BMW but we all know that modern accountancy/procurement methods means everything is sourced from the lowest bidder. A comforting thought when your next a passenger flying 7mile up!

For BMW to be blamed because a Ford driver lost control under emergency braking is a stretch of the blame culture - the junction where the broken down BMW was 'parked' appears to be well sighted (unless its was dark or bad weather).

Rule 126 of the Highway Code, I believe. "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin
