76,565 Vehicles Will Be Recalled by BMW Because of The Frontal Air Bag

Tags: BMW, Recall

BMW of North America (BMW) has issued a voluntary recall on 76,565 vehicles of certain model year due to concern with the frontal air bag of the front passenger seat.

Vehicles under this recall include model year 2006 325i, 325xi, 330i, 330xi sedans and 325xi sports wagons, model year 2007 328i, 328xi, 335i, 335xi sedans and 328i and 328xi sports wagons, model year 2006-2007 525i, 525xi, 530i, 530xi, 550i sedans and 530xi sports wagons, model year 2006 760i sedans, model year 2006-2007 750i, 750Li, and 760Li sedans, and model year 2006 X5 sports activity vehicles.

All the vehicles are equipped with certain seat types. The passenger frontal air bag may fatigue and develop cracks which could lead to a system failure.

If the system fails in the event of a crash, the front passenger air bag would be deactivated, increasing the risk of personal injury.

The luxury carmaker will notify the owners of the affected vehicles with an interim notification letter in January 2014.

Since parts are not currently available, it will also send a second letter to owners when parts are available in March 2014.

Dealers of the company will repair the occupant detection mat to eliminate the possibility that it may crack, free of charge.

Additionally, owners of model year 2006-2007 3 Series with standard seats, 5 Series with comfort seats, and Z4 models, will receive an extended warranty on their front passenger seat occupant detection mat.
