BMW withdraws about 7,000 carsJune 14, 2019
The company had to organize a fairly large revocable campaign that would affect the BMW X7 SUV, as well as the 2-, 4- and 3-Series models. The reason for the recall was the possible problems of airbags.
Airbags again caused the revocable campaign. This time around 7,000 BMWs of various models in North America will be sent for emergency maintenance. The reason was not a marriage, but rather an error in the installation. Thus, 1,822 copies of the BMW X7 2019 of the year in the xDrive 40i and xDrive 50i variants are responded due to an installation error with regard to the interior trim. This could potentially lead to incorrect triggering of the cushion, or damage to the casing with the risk of injury to people.
Another 1 691 2-Series vehicles, 3 234 4-Series units and 157 3-Series vehicles (5 079 units in total) will be withdrawn due to the leg airbags. According to the company, during the assembly they could be incorrectly folded. Accordingly, at the time of the accident may work in an abnormal manner that was not tested and not tested during crash tests.
All work will be carried out exclusively by the automaker. As part of a revocable campaign, the installation will be checked. If necessary, all defects will be corrected.
