(FRANKFURT, Germany) - German automaker BMW is recalling 176,000 vehicles over a problem with the power brake system.

The company says in rare cases an interruption in oil supply to a part can mean loss of power braking assist. The brakes will still work but the driver would have to press harder on the pedal.

The recall covers 76,200 vehicles sold in the U.S.

Affected models include:

-- 2012-14 BMW 320i and 328i sedans

-- 2014 328i xDrive sports wagons

-- 2012-13 BMW 528i sedans

-- 2013-14 BMW X1 sDrive28i and X1 xDrive28i

-- 2013-14 BMW X3 xDrive28i

-- 2012-14 BMW Z4 sDrive28i

The company says owners will be notified by mail to bring their cars in for repair. BMW say that if brake assist power is lost, drivers should pull over and call roadside assistance.
